The Retro ‘70s StingRay bass honors Music Man's American craftsmanship of the 1970s with an abundance of classic-inspired features. The four color options available on the StingRay retro edition—black, white, vintage sunburst, and heritage natural—replicate the look and feel of Music Man's flagship 4-string bass and are each finished with a gloss polyester topcoat. This throwback edition bass is a faithful reproduction of the StingRay's original specifications, with a 21-fret 3-Bolt maple neck with micro-tilt adjustment, bullet truss rod adjustment, a strings-through-the-body bridge with adjustable mute pads, and an Alnico-loaded humbucking pickup. Overall, this vintage-inspired instrument exudes that classic tone and feel while combining the greatest qualities of traditional craftsmanship with contemporary playability and dependability.
