    Product Description

    Here's What Sterling By Music Man Say About the Stingray Short Scale:

    The Sterling by Music Man Short Scale StingRay bass has the iconic StingRay sound shrunk down into a 30” scale length package. With easier accessibility, a passive boost, and a single humbucking pickup with higher output neodymium magnets, the Short Scale StingRay offers comfortability without compromise. The pickup configuration includes parallel, true single-coil, and series modes for diverse tonal options.

    30" Short Scale

    For the first time, the iconic StingRay design is available with a 30" short scale makeover, delivering easier playability.

    Dynamic Tone Controls

    The StingRay Short Scale features a neodymium humbucking pickup with 3-way rotary switch. The pickup configuration includes parallel, true single-coil, and series modes.

    Trusted Customer29th Mar 2022

    First bass was badly damaged and so returned. The second bass had a loose tone knob, the nut not seated properly and a small imperfection in the finish. I fixed the first and I can live with the other two because, generally it is a lovely instrument and excellent value. However, I know Sterling is a budget range but at £700, or really at any price, three faults is not acceptable, not what you expect from Music Man and is not what you would see from Squire or MIM Fender.

    Mr. Nic Allen5th May 2021

    I bought this because I'd always fancied owning a Stingray, and a short-scale bass makes a lot of sense for me as I'm primarily a guitarist (and also rather short!). I'm so glad I went for it - this bass is an absolute joy to play, straight out of the box. The action is set perfectly, and the combination of unfinished neck & fretboard and short-scale makes it so easy to fret and even play chords all over the neck. And crucially - it has that classic Stingray tone. Surprising when you consider this is a passive instrument, and also short scale. I also own a Fender Jazz Bass, and although that is a great instrument, I can't see it getting a look-in from now on.
