What we say:
Since the early days in 1974 when the company was founded by Leo Fender and friends in Fullerton, California to the Ernie Ball era of the present day led by Sterling Ball, Music Man have provided guitar players with superb sounding, high quality guitars with a reputation for incredible-feeling necks.
With a strong roster of top-flight artists like John Petrucci, St Vincent and Steve Lukather lending their name to signature models, Music Man are a legitimately significant brand putting out world-class guitars: they are fast becoming a go-to brand for taste-making younger artists who don’t necessarily want to play the same guitars of the previous generation. For guitarists and bassists looking for something relatively traditional but with a slight twist, they can count of music Man to deliver extremely high build quality and super-expressive tone.
The Sterling bass is designed for those who love the StingRay but just need something ever so slightly smaller in both body size and neck. The Sterling offers the same level of tone and playability but in an alternative that certain players will take to like a duck to water.
With the same ceramic humbucker and active 3 band tone controls as the StingRay, you can be confident of a bold and adaptable tone with lots of personal control over how you sound. The Ash body resonates very well and the maple neck is a typical Music Man joy to experience. Test drive one of these when you're looking for your next quality bass.
