Sterling by Music Man StingRay SR50, a reimagining of the iconic '70s StingRay design with premium modern appointments. It features a roasted maple neck and locking tuners for unparalleled stability and sustain. The StingRay SR50 is built with a solid poplar body that resonates powerfully, providing a robust tonal foundation for the dual humbucking pickups. These pickups offer a bold, punchy tone that cuts through loud live mixes with ease. With a 3-way pickup selector switch, players can access a range of tones from bright and crisp to thick and distorted.

Roasted Maple Neck Enhances Playability

The roasted maple neck provides a smooth, fast playing surface, ideal for complex soloing and intricate rhythm work. Its medium jumbo frets make bending and vibrato easy to execute while the 25.5" scale length offers a familiar feel for most guitarists. Locking tuners keep the StingRay SR50 in tune through the most aggressive playing, eliminating frustrating tuning issues mid-song or mid-set.

Dual Humbuckers Deliver Power and Articulation

The dual humbucking pickups are the heart of the StingRay SR50's powerful tone. They provide a bold, punchy sound with excellent note articulation, allowing chord voicings and melodic lines to ring through clearly. The bridge pickup offers a bright, cutting tone that is perfect for solos while the neck pickup produces a warm, throaty sound ideal for rhythm playing. With the 3-way pickup selector switch, players can access the full range of tones available from these versatile pickups.

Vintage-Style Tremolo Adds Expression

A vintage-style tremolo bar allows players to bend pitches up and down, adding expression and nuance to solos and lead lines. This tremolo system provides a subtle undulation and warble to notes without going out of tune, achieving a musical vibrato effect. The tremolo arm itself has a sturdy, non-slip design so it stays firmly in place until needed.

Classic Styling with Premium Components

With its iconic shape, the StingRay SR50 pays homage to the original Music Man designs of the 1970s. It features premium components like a 3-ply pickguard, open-gear tuners and a 4+2 headstock. A rosewood fingerboard and matching painted headstock provide a sleek, high-end look. This guitar delivers a perfect blend of vintage style and modern playability at an accessible price.
