The StingRay armed with dual humbuckers and an ultrafast Sterling neck.

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.

  • Stingray's are all around the best bass for the money

    As reviewed by Mike H. on 6/6/2010

    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.

  • AMAZING sound, GREAT versatility

    As reviewed by Steven Collins on 5/4/2012

    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.

  • Great bass!

    As reviewed by Gegatso on 6/23/2010

    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.
