The Ernie Ball Music Man Short Scale StingRay bass offers a 30″ scale for easier playability due to the shorter spacing between the frets. The passive humbucking pickup is equipped with higher output neodymium magnets, and has been specially designed for the Short Scale bass, providing its signature warm tone. The electronics package includes a 3-way rotary switch featuring parallel, true single-coil, and series modes. Like its big brother the StingRay Special, the Short Scale bass comes standard with a modern classic bridge, 22 stainless steel frets, and new lightweight Music Man tuning machines with a finer gear ratio. New for 2020 are the Vintage Burst and Starry Night finishes.
Here’s a clip from earlier this year with Robert from Ernie Ball Music Man, who shows us the new range of guitars and basses at Winter NAMM 2020 including the Sabre, Luke III, mariposa and the Short Scale Stringray basses
