A smaller, more affordable alternative from Sterling by Music Man.

The S.U.B. SB4 Bass Guitar is the answer to your prayers. A slimmer, smaller, lighter body and narrow nut width make the SB4 an incredibly easy-to-play bass. The solid hardwood body is smaller than the Ray4 and offers the same 2-band active preamp, high-output humbucking bass pickup. Narrow 38mm nut width makes for a comfortable, easy-to-play neck. It has a standard 34" scale and comes with a beautiful glossy black finish.

Case sold separately.

  • 2 Band active preamp

  • Amazing Affordable Stingray

    As reviewed by Donna Morris on 10/11/2012

    Ok yes the body is not a Stingray technically but this bass plays just like one! There is no need to buy the MM version or the SBMM version!!! This bass plays, feels, and sounds just like the actually ray. When I walked in i noticed it and plugged it into one of Edens new 210 combos and turn the volume and pre amp controlls all the way up and i tried the bass on punk stuff, fuck, slap, and Tool and i cannot be more impressed by this bass! The neck was nice and fast, frets were not under cut and they were 100%smooth, and the bass was actually plenty light! I would tell ANY bassist, new or veteran to pick up this beast! You will not regret it!

  • good bass

    As reviewed by andres luna on 10/16/2012

    needed a bass i could use for band practice and around the house. The bass really impressed me for what i paid for it. The action is good and the neck feels good. The bass is really loud due to the active pre-amp and humbucker pick up. Sound wise i wouldn't compare it to my other basses (Geddy lee Fender Jazz, Warwick Corvette and Jackson concert Bass)but the sound is good and punchy. Gonna use it for mu week end rock gig. I would easily pick up one before a Squire Bass or other basses in this price range.

  • Compare to Basses Costing $1000s More

    As reviewed by Neal Gold on 11/25/2012

    First thing you'll notice is the balanced body and neck, and that it's barely heavier than a Stratocaster. The thinner, satin-smooth neck does nothing to impact the wonderfully throaty and bone-crunching power of this bass. To me the beauty of this instrument is that it's not as fussy-looking as a lot of active-pup basses can be. Simple, direct and very fun to play. I had planned on spending 2 hours at the nearest GC to find a modestly-priced fretted bass and literally cut the visit to an hour, after I plugged this one in and took it through its paces. The active humbucker has very responsive treble and bass EQs that shape tone dramatically or subtlely. I'm not prone to exaggeration, seriously, but if you know that what's important in any instrument is its tone, playability and reliability rather than its pedigree then you owe it to yourself to closely audition this bass. In my life I've never been so impressed with an instrument at this price brimming with such fit and feel. You know how you pick up an axe and check out the price, only to say to yourself, "yep, this is definitely a cheapo?" Well, this is NOT that axe.
