Sterling SUB StingRay in Vintage Sunburst Satin

Written by

Elliot Stent

The Music Man StingRay is an iconic bass design, admired for its unique looks and for the punchy tone delivered by its potent-sounding bridge humbucker. To meet the demands of bassists looking for a much more affordable version, the Sterling SUB StingRay encompasses the features that everyone loves about the original design but a lower price-point.


The SUB StingRay's body is formed from Basswood, a balanced-sounding tonewood that ensures a mid-focused tone. This serves as a great foundation for the thick sound of the humbucker, transferring all of its tonal properties. 

Joined with a bolt-on Maple neck, you can expect a snappy response, giving a fast attack to notes even when playing finger-style.


The main reason why bassists love the tone of the StingRay is because of it ultra-punchy humbucker. Placed near the bridge to also produce a crisp top-end, the definition and clarity of this pickup allows your sound to cut through strongly in a mix, without getting buried. 

This is also helped in part by an active preamp, which adds an extra dimension of fidelity. This also allows you to easily tweak your tone on-the-fly, and set the bass up to suit almost any amplifier.
