New Classic Colors for 2011

The Ernie Ball Music Man Classic collection has new Limited Edition colors available. We are happy to announce the following Classic Color options for 2011:
  • Lake Tahoe Blue
  • El Dorado Gold
  • Black
  • Retro Burst
  • Classic Natural
  • Classic Candy
The new Ernie Ball/Music Man Classic Collection instruments are modern renditions of an era that brought Music Man to the forefront of Instrument design. These basses are not intended to be exact reproductions of original instruments, rather a celebration of unique features and cosmetics coveted by collectors and players alike. MM decided that combining past and present popular design elements with 1st issue cosmetic features from the 1970's, would result in a bass loaded with Vintage vibe and appeal. These classic inspired Instruments will make collectors and MM Stingray fans proud!

Features that create the Classic lineup of Instruments:
  • Slab Ash Body(no contours)
  • Maple Neck with 70's Neck Carve
  • Rosewood Or Maple Fingerboard
  • 7.5" inch Radius
  • 2 Band EQ Active Electronics with Cut and Boost Capabilities
  • 21 Frets
  • Chrome Battery Cover
  • Alnico Magnets(Sterling Bass-Ceramic)
  • Standard Nut width 1 3/4"
  • White Plastic Melamine nut
  • Finished Neck and Fingerboard(Maple)
  • BO# Serial Numbers in Sequential Order on bridge plate
  • Med-Thin fret profile
  • Headstock decal from the 70's era basses
The 6 bolt neck design and modern truss rod wheel were also retained as an improvement for ease of adjustment which is much more efficient then the Micro Tilt/Bullet Truss design of yesteryear. The current classic Stingrays are in most cases much lighter than the originals (The weight of 70's era instruments have always been an issue). The tone is very reminiscent of the originals featuring a 2 band cut and boost EQ, Ash body and polyester finished maple neck. Also Available as a 5 String Stingray and 4 String Sterling.
