Ernie Ball Music Man Unveils New StingRay Special Bass Colors
The NAMM Show was held in the spring this year, and Ernie Ball Music Man was ready for it with new colors for the StingRay Special. The company revealed four new finishes: Sea Breeze, Laguna Green, Pueblo Pink, and Butter Cream.
Each of the finishes will come with a rosewood fingerboard. They will be available on both four and five-string versions of the bass as well as the H and HH models. Other key features include a Music Man humbucker, a roasted maple neck, and an 18-volt 3-band EQ.
The new Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay Specials will be shipping this summer, with prices starting at $2,799.
