Ernie Ball Music Man

Description

The Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay HT electric guitar blends the familiar shape and feel of previous StingRay models with the addition of custom Music Man pickup technology. Inspired by over a decade of guitar string research, the pickups deliver an incredibly dynamic and responsive playing experience, achieving an ultrahigh-output, powerful low-end response while retaining distinctively clear tone and definition at lower volume levels. The HT (Heat Treated) bridge pickup utilizes patent-pending heat-treated pole pieces with a large ceramic magnet and an overwound coil that gives the pickup higher frequency harmonics and excellent touch sensitivity. The StingRay’s custom-wound neck humbucker also features a large ceramic magnet, and has been wound specifically to pair with the StingRay’s HT bridge pickup.

The StingRay HT has a contoured alder body, roasted figured maple neck and 22 stainless steel frets. The electronics package features a push-push adjustable 20dB boost function and a transparent buffered output for complete tonal consistency, wherever your volume control is set. Additional appointments include a stoptail tune-o-matic bridge, Schaller locking tuners and chrome or matte black hardware. Comes with a custom Mono case.
