      Sterling by Music Man Ray34 Electric Bass Guitar (580995)

Delivers StingRay sound, looks, and feel at a much more accessible price.

The Sterling RAY34 Bass Guitar features a select solid swamp ash body for percussive lows, subtle mids, and expansive highs. The lightweight swamp ash brings out the nuances and clarity that Music Man basses are known for. Combined with a Music Man-designed Sterling active 3-band preamp, you get all the tonal combinations you could ever need. A single Music Man Humbucking pickup has alnico pole pieces for classic warm tones. The Music Man designed 6-bolt neck joint used in all the Sterling Ray basses are strong and stable with no shift in the neck pocket for superior tone transfer. The Music Man-designed bridge uses a thick saddle for precise adjustments and stability. Precise slotting on each saddle guarantees no sideways movement on the bass strings during heavy playing.

Basses from Sterling by Music Man are perfect for players seeking the Music Man vibe at a more affordable price. This instrument is an accurate version of the popular Music Man bass with no compromise on quality or materials. Sterling by MusicMan pledges to make an instrument that will deliver the performance you need. Each instrument is inspected, setup and played before shipment.

Includes a gig bag.

  • Great Intermediate Bass

    As reviewed by JJ on 3/28/2011

    The Sterling Ray 34 is a sweet piece! Great tonal variation and active electronics. Midpoints on the tone knobs is a nice touch as well. The neck is by no means chunky and it feels like a dream. It is a very reliable bass that is road-ready! The color of the honeyburst model is impressive to say the least. Plays and sounds like a high-end Musicman and sounds great with slap playing. If you are looking for an excellent bass for under this price, then this is definitely a bass to test drive and consider purchasing.

  • Have a Budget? want a bass you'll love for years? this is it.

    As reviewed by Matt Maley on 7/6/2012

    As a young 18 year old player it is tough to find a good instrument you want to play with for many years to come with a limited budget, and still be able to pay this price. I searched far and wide and honestly this is the best on the market. I bought this christmas 2010 with gift cards and my own money and it is beautiful. I compared it to music man ray which this rich kid at my school bought right after I did and honestly other than some minor things they are exactly the same. Honestly if you removed the markings and told me it was the music man I wouldn't be able to tell the difference unless I compared them side by side. For anyone who has a budge but still wants a bass they will love for years this is the bass for you. And you can play literally any kind of music you want on it with all the options, turn the treble and bass up for some nasty slappin', turn the treble down and the bass and mid way up and its a P-bass, and everything in between.

  • Best for the Money !

    As reviewed by Chuck Rackley on 8/23/2011

    I recently had the chance to sit in with a friends band and he handed me his E B bass to play and I fell in love with it . I decided to go to G C and get one but when I got there I spotted this bass in the silver burst finish . I sat there with an E B and this Sterling for an hour going back and forth and could not find any real difference between the two . Asked my wife which she liked and she said the sterling was prettier ( which is true ) , bought it and couldn't be happier great product at less than half the price ! You won't be disappointed in this period . By the way I am a regular gigging musician who plays every week and this is my new bass of choice .
