2016 Music Man Stingray, Old Smoothie in mint condition. "Smoothie Sunburst" finish, white pickguard, maple neck & fretboard, original hard case. Serial number: E98706. Weight: 9lbs 6oz.
Since its introduction in 1976, the Music Man StingRay has been embraced as one of the world’s classic electric bass designs. To celebrate, Ernie Ball Music Man is proud to introduce the 40th Anniversary “Old Smoothie” StingRay, a faithful reproduction of StingRay prototype #26, designed 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, 34-inch scale maple neck and fingerboard, low profile narrow frets, active electronics, hardware and exclusive chocolate-burst finish.
This is an all-round excellent bass, the sound is warm and punchy. It's been fully set up in our workshop with a fresh set of Rotosound nickel round-wound strings and has a great action allowing for superb playability up and down the neck.
