Ernie Ball Music Man

collapse expand iconDescription

The Cliff Williams Icon Series StingRay Bass from Ernie Ball Music Man is a precise recreation of Cliff’s 1979 Sunburst Stingray bass. This workhorse has seen more than 40 years of service in stadiums, concert halls and recording studios throughout the world and has laid the foundation for some of AC/DC’s most iconic tracks including Back in Black, Hells Bells, For Those About to Rock and many more. Music Man has stayed true to the original instrument, from the body wood and neck specs to pickup construction and the faded sunburst shading, making this bass great for any AC/DC fan. Featuring a 3-bolt neck attachment, bullet truss rod and a string-thru bridge, this finely crafted instrument feels, plays and sounds just like Cliff William’s original StingRay bass.
