The Music Man StingRay Slo Special 4-String HH Electric Bass is constructed with a select hardwood body, select maple neck, Schaller BM tuners, and a 3-band active EQ. This version offers dual Music Man humbucking pickups with 5-way switching for an even greater range of sound.
Few basses are as flat-out cool or have as much powerful tone as the famous StingRay. When it was introduced in 1976, it was the first bass to feature active electronics. Advances such as a 6-bolt neck joint, contoured body, superior neck truss rod system, and rock-solid bridge keep the StingRay Slo Special bass in an exclusive collection of high-end basses.
The Sterling neck is a thinner profile than the standard StingRay, so you can fly up and down the neck at lightning speed. The comfort pays for itself.

I have always wanted a StingRay, but the thickness of the neck kept me from shelling out the bucks. Because of my short fingers I normally play a Jazz Bass, and in the past few years have played an Ibanez sr750 (which is a nice Bass for the money) but this, a StingRay with a slim fast Sterling neck is in a league all its own. Nothing... and I mean nothing sounds like a StingRay. This Bass plays and sounds as good as it looks. I got the Black Cherry Burst and it is Beautiful. Played great right out of the box, needed a very slight adjustment but was almost perfect from the start. If you can afford it, you will not be disappointed.
Like many musicians I have been thru a LOT of basses. This will be the last bass I buy. LOVE this bass. I've used Music Man Sterlings in the past (liked the feel and the sound but still just something not there for me). I've been a Music Man guy for years, switched to another bass to change my sound up and it was the biggest mistake I ever made (Won't mention the other brand as it's a great bass just wasn't for me). Wanted the Stingray tone but don't like the thick necks. Problem solved. The Slo Special has the Stingray body and pickups but a thinner Sterling type neck. The double humbuckers adds an amazing amount of versatility. I can get that in your face Stingray sound but also can get a deep dub sound and with coils 2 & 3 on can even get a J Bass tone (but still has the thicker Music Man tone which I LOVE). The neck on this is a Sterling neck (although it seems just a tiny tiny bit wider, I'm assuming to make it fit the Stingray body and pickup poles. I actually like it a little better than the Sterling neck. I HIGHLY recommend this. It's got the classic Stingray tone but so much more which is VERY important if like me you play in a band that has to cover a LOT of musical ground. No need to have multiple basses anymore, this one does it all. This is without a doubt the best bass I have ever owned (and in the past 20 years I've owned at least 14 basses I can remember). I HIGHLY recommend you give this a try, if you want a versatile bass with a modern sound, great feel, great look then check out the Stingray HH Slo Special.
The best bass guitars on the planet! That's my opinion!! This is my 2nd bass and it plays so sweet, that I'm looking at a 3rd one! Seriously, these basses play easy, are built like a rock and have great tone. I would highly recommend that anyone who appreciates greatness should atleast try one at practice or a gig, they've convinced me and I have been playing classic rock for 35 years, played thru a million basses, I find these repeat night after night Go ahead, check one out soon, and maybe you'll end up collecting them like I do!
Picked one of these up at the local store. Never tried one before but used to have a standard Stingray and didn't like the neck. Someone really thought of the right thing to do when they put this smaller neck on the standard Stingray. Needed a set-up and that's about it. Plays wonderfully and nothing else gets quite that tone.
I've been playing bass now for just about 10 years and my stingray has been my go to bass for most of those years now. The bass can be played in any style of music, hard rock, jazz, funk, anything you need it to do it can. I've tour with my stingray many many times and it can take a beating and still just keep going. I have both the single pick up and the dual pick up models and they are both just amazing. The dual pick up models offer a vast array of tones and with the pick up selector you can change back and fourth so easily. I would highly suggest a stingray to anyone that is serious about playing bass, and wants a bass that sounds amazing without breaking the bank.
As a long time musician and as a long time bassist, I have owned and played dozens of amazing basses, and this is one of my favorites. This bass' unique 3-way pick-up toggle switch allows for maximum playability, giving the user an amazing range in variety of music able to be played. I highly recommend this bass to anyone who is looking to further their skills and wants to rock out on an amazing instrument.
I have been playing bass for about 5 years now. I have owned four different brands including Fender, Gibson, ESP, and Ibanez. This is my first Music Man and I love it. It is by far my new favorite bass. The sound that this thing produces is amazing and the quality of this instrument is just unbelievable. Not to mention the black on black is beautiful. I just cant get the same sound out of my other basses. I would recommend this guitar to anyone.
