The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without the care that it, and you, deserve.
First introduced in 1976, the StingRay has been revered as one of the most iconic bass guitars in history. The StingRay was the first production four string bass to feature onboard active equalization. The flagship of the Music Man line, today's StingRay is the same as it was some forty years ago featuring a solid roadworthy construction, elegant oval pickguard, 3+1 tuning key configuration, and the ever popular Music Man humbucker. All of which combined produce a look, feel and sound that is remarkably unmistakable.
The overall reduction in weight is a much-welcomed feature of the new StingRay Special. The Ash body, improved contours, and lightweight hardware provide greater overall balance for extra comfort and a more enjoyable playing experience. Enhanced body contours are rounded for more comfort in any playing position while retaining that revered, iconic StingRay sound, while the reengineered, lightweight tuning machines create a more balanced neck while still providing ultra-reliable tuning stability. The roasted Maple neck with sculpted neck joint provides uninhibited access to all 22 stainless steel frets on the roasted Maple fretboard.
The new and improved StingRay electronics feature powerful neodymium magnets, bringing you more output and a wider range of sounds, and a newly designed 18-volt 3-Band preamp for extra clean headroom that lets you dial in everything from modern punch to classic, vintage tones. Also equipped with a vintage Music Man top loaded chrome plated, steel bridge plate with vintage nickel plated steel saddles.
You are buying a high quality instrument made of wood. Each instrument goes thorough a pre-shipment inspection to ensure you are getting a great quality instrument. However, please keep in mind when instruments are shipped they can endure temperature changes as well as doing the "shipper shuffle" and therefore minor adjustments may be needed to set up the instrument to your personal preferences after receiving it.
Included in your shipment will be instructions on care and maintenance.
