The Sterling by Music Man Ray34QM pays tribute to that iconic, original Music Man StingRay bass design in look, feel and sound.
The Ray34QM bass features a select, even grained African Mahogany body, offering a rich, round sound for a deep bottom end, pronounced mids, and clear voiced highs. The top of the bass is adorned with rich, highly figured Quilted Maple, which shows off the Neptune Blue finish beautifully. The visually stunning craftsmanship imparts a stunning beauty that shows its lineage in the highly sought after Ball Family Reserve instruments.
The electronics feature a no nonsense layout, and the tones from the Music Man designed 3-band preamp and pickup truly capture that "StingRay Sound".
Ray34QM's Sterling by Music Man bass bridge is modeled after the heavy duty Music Man design, and features fully adjustable and intonatable steel barrel saddles for fantastic tone. Similarly, the tuning keys on the 3+1 trademark design headstock are also of rugged, 20:1 ratio, heavy duty design. Whether at home or on the road, all of the hardware will give the player years of trouble free, accurate playability.
Premium Tonewoods Throughout
Ray34QM features a toneful, select African Mahogany body capped with gorgeous, highly figured quilted Maple, and is manufactured by Master Craftsmen in Korea.
It's Not Just A Looker
The Music Man designed pickup and active preamp assembly are StingRay to the core, delivering a classic tone that has rocked the 'bottom end' of many hits spanning generations.
