Music Man 'Old Smoothie'

Ernie Ball Music Man has celebrated the 40th anniversary of the StingRay bass by recreating the prototype #26, designed by Leo Fender for Sterling Ball during his time spent testing and developing the original prototypes back in the 70's.

Named for its smooth even tone that is reminiscent of the highly sought after vintage Music Man StingRay sound, Old Smoothie has been precisely reproduced including the one-of-a-kind custom made 10 pole piece pickup design, body headstock and pickguard shape.

Finished in a gorgeous chocolate-burst, this limited edition 40th Anniversary StingRay bass guitar also features a 34-inch scale Maple neck and fingerboard, high profile narrow frets and active electronics.
