Ernie Ball Music Man is celebrating 30 years since the launch of its Stingray bass with the introduction of an anniversary five string model.
This new anniversary edition sports a transparent buttercream finish with red tortoise shell pickguard and is highlighted by a roasted figured maple neck. A choice of maple or rosewood fingerboard is accented with white binding, white position markers and stainless steel frets. The pre-amp and pickup are exclusive to this anniversary model, providing both ample punch and added articulation. Each instrument ships with a hand-signed certificate of authenticity.
Simultaneously, Ernie Ball has released a short video tour of the Music Man factory in San Luis Obispo.
