Sterling by Music Man Classic Stingray Guitar in 3 Tone Sunburst
The Sterling by Music Man Stingray guitar is a beautiful look back at the original Fender Music Man guitar design that built the entire Music Man brand. With a simple double cutaway design, dual humbucker pickups and a vintage tremolo system this guitar mixes the best of both the S and Single cutaway guitars of the 50's and 60's and loads it all in to one guitar.
Music Man Feel
While the look is very classic S type in its own funky way the Stingray still feels like its own instrument. This comes from the neck which has a rather flat 12" Radius fretboard and a quite close string spacing that Music Man players will instantly recognise. In a way this is an astonishing in-between point of those traditional 50's guitars and a more ergonomic, modern design.
The humbuckers on this guitar were designed by Music Man to deliver a traditional humbucker tone in a lighter and more ergonomic shape than the inspiration. These things sound great with plenty of warm low end and a mid-gain output that suit rock, pop and blues styles.
