Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 4H Black 2008
EB Music Man Stingray 4H, black on black, made in USA 2008. The black Stingray: it's an institution, right? This is the bass for every occasion. The black on black finish looks awesome; it's got a few scuffs and marks, but that only adds to the appeal. The board has plenty of play wear and is looking awesome, and thanks to being stainless steel, the frets are still in great shape despite the obvious miles on the clock. The maple board and ash body combo combines for a huge amount of tonal punch; there's a throaty midrange growl on tap balanced by an immediate, defined treble and a thumping, party starting low end. The neck feels well-played in and super smooth; it's a tasty round moderate profile that will make friends easily. This will surely deliver across all sorts of genres and make you look and sound good doing it; it's what you deserve, right?
