⚌Reduced‼ Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 Bass Honeyburst, 2004

Introduced in 1987, the Stingray 5 bass was the first new bass offered following Ernie Ball’s purchase of Music Man, and has consistently had a solid following. This model is based on the Music Man Stingray bass introduced in 1976 and partly designed by Leo Fender, with input from Sterling Ball. When first introduced, it was quickly adopted by players like Tony Levin and others who frequently needed lower C or B notes, but without sacrificing the tone of higher pitches.

Music Man Sabre Bass Sunburst, 1978

Music Man Sabre Bass Sunburst, 1978

Here’s a rarity and bit of history – a Music Man Sabre Bass, built during 1978 in Fullerton, California by CLF Research for Music Man. CLF stood for Clarence Leo Fender. Music Man was founded in 1974 and in 1975, Leo Fender’s non-compete agreement lapsed and he became president of Music Man. Until 1979, Music Man guitars and basses were built by Leo’s other company, CLF Research. After 1979 and until Music Man folded in 1984, Grover Jackson built the bodies and necks and assembled the instruments.

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass White, 2014

❌SOLD❌ Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass White, 2014

Built during 2014 and naturally in a gloss white finish this Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass was the first instrument produced in 1976 by the then-new Music Man company, part owned by Leo Fender. The Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Bass is a full scale length, 34 inch 4 string bass with an Ash body and bolt-on Maple neck; both Maple and Rosewood fingerboards, as with this example, are available. The StingRay features a single humbucking AlNiCo magnet pickup in the bridge position, and an active 3-band EQ running off a single 9-volt battery, accessible via a small door on the back. The short headstock is typical of the Music Man design – at least one tuner is shifted to the treble side to reduce the length of the head, and improve overall weight distribution and balance.
