Curly quilted goodness gets its voice in the Stingray Ray34QM bass guitar. A visually striking and toneful instrument, the Ray34QM features a select African mahogany body capped with gorgeous, highly figured quilted maple, and is manufactured by Master Craftsmen in Korea.
Since its introduction in 1976, the Music Man StingRay bass has been embraced as one of the world’s classic electric bass designs. The Sterling by Music Man Ray34QM pays tribute to that iconic, original Music Man® StingRay bass design in look, feel and sound.
The Ray34QM bass features a select, even grained African Mahogany body, offering a rich, round sound for a deep bottom end, pronounced mids, and clear voiced highs. The top of the bass is adorned with rich, highly figured Quilted Maple, which shows off the finish beautifully. The visually stunning craftsmanship imparts a stunning beauty that shows its’ lineage in the highly sought after Ball Family Reserve instruments.
The electronics feature a no nonsense layout, and the tones from the Music Man designed 3-band preamp and pickup truly capture that StingRay Sound.
Ray34QM’s Sterling by Music Man bass bridge is modeled after the heavy duty Music Man design, and features fully adjustable and intonatable steel barrel saddles for fantastic tone. Similarly, the tuning keys on the 3+1 trademark design headstock are also of rugged, 20:1 ratio, heavy duty design. Whether at home or on the road, all of the hardware will give the player years of trouble free, accurate playability.
Manufactured in Korea by Master Craftsmen, the Ray34QM in Neptune Blue is truly a benchmark instrument for the Sterling By Music Man line.
