collapse expand iconDescription

This StingRay Ray4 Electric 4-string Bass is modeled after the renowned Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay, an iconic instrument that has defined bassists since the late 1970s. With its flat slab body, 21 medium jumbo frets, and double cutaway shape, the Ray4 provides a comfortable playing experience for bassists of all styles. The ceramic humbucker pickup offers an extremely responsive yet noiseless sound, allowing you to achieve a rich, full tone.

Active Preamp Provides Tonal Control

The Ray4 features a 9V powered active preamp with individual volume high and low cut/boost controls, giving you superior tonal control and customization. Dial in the perfect amount of low end punch or high end snap with the turn of a knob. The active preamp also provides a hot output, allowing your tone to cut through the mix.

Adjustable Bridge Ensures Optimal Playability

The Ray4 has a fully adjustable, heavy-duty bridge that provides complete control over intonation and individual string height. Adjust each string to your preferred action for optimal comfort and playability, whether practicing at home or performing on stage. The adjustable bridge also allows you to properly intonate each string, ensuring your Ray4 bass plays in tune all the way up the neck.

Timeless Style With Modern Appeal

While the Ray4 takes its design cues from the iconic StingRay bass, several modern appointments give this bass its own stylish flair. Open gear tuners offer a vintage styling while providing smooth and accurate tuning. Combined with a natural satin finish and matching accents, the Ray4 bass has a sleek, contemporary look with enduring visual appeal.
