Comments about Sterling by Music Man StingRay SR50 Electric Guitar:

Where to begin with this guitar, well just a quick history lesson that you'll like. This guitar was actually designed by Leo Fender himself, when he sold Fender to CBS back in '65 he worked for Music Man (which would later be bought by Ernie Ball, hence "Ernie Ball Music Man"). Sterling is to MusicMan as Squier is to Fender. Although, this Sterling Stingray is a very high quality instrument not be overlooked.

I highly recommend you play one in a shop, you'll be thoroughly impressed with the pristine set up and the solid craftsmenship. The action will almost always be perfect because Music Man sets them up before they're sent to stores all around. The neck isn't anything I've ever played, I didn't want to put it down because of how comfortable it felt.

The electronics are good, beefy and hot. They're almost like P90s because they sound good both clean and in distortion. But they're not anywhere close to being bright and chimey like single coils. This will push the amp a little more than normal so this beast will always have a light growl the harder you play it. I like the pickups but if I ever did professional recording I would probably change them out for a little higher quality ones for a clearer sound, but for live they sound amazing.

Tremolo arm is a little stiff but the bridge has a handle that makes it easier to get that vibrato without the arm, it's kinda more fun actually.

Overall, this guitar is worth every penny, if you're looking for a strat like guitar that's equipped for heavy distortion, gain, overdrive, and easy soloing this is the guitar for you. I only gave it 4 stars because some people might not like the pickups and will want to change them out, also it's kinda on the heavier side, mine is about 14lbs or so.


Love it
