Reimagined.

Rebuilt From The Ground Up.

Optimized, modernized, yet so familiar, the new StingRay bass is tailor-made for today’s most discerning players.

5-Bolt Sculpted Neck Joint

The sculpted neck joint provides uninhibited access to all 22 stainless steel frets atop roasted maple necks.

Refined Body Contours

Enhanced body contours are rounded for more comfort in any playing position while retaining that revered, iconic StingRay sound.

Revoiced.

Powerful Neodymium Pickups

The new and improved StingRay electronics feature powerful neodymium magnets, bringing you more output and a wider range of sounds

New 18-Volt Preamp

A newly designed 18-volt 3-Band preamp for extra clean headroom lets you dial in everything from modern punch to classic, vintage tones.

Reborn.

Lightweight Performance.

Weighing in at an average of only eight and a half pounds, the StingRay is lighter than ever but still packs its signature punch.

Reengineered Hardware.

Reengineered lightweight tuning machines create a more balanced neck while still providing ultra-reliable tuning stability.
