The roasted curly maple neck in a slim C-profile can be played easily up to the high registers thanks to the sculpted neck heel.

Bolt-On construction with premium tonewoods.

The BFR StingRay Special HH Slugger is equipped with a five-bolt C-profile neck made of roasted curly maple, which produces excellent playing characteristics in all positions thanks to a hand-rubbed oil-wax Finish. The Roasted Flame Maple fingerboard is rounded off by the virtually wear-free stainless steel fretboard in "High Profile, Wide" format. Furthermore, the ash wood body provides a colorful sound, with a characterful timbre.

Two neodymium humbuckers with 5-way coil select circuitry and the active 3-band tone control provide a versatile sound spectrum.

Neodymium pickups with flexible electronics

The versatility of the Music Man BFR StingRay Slugger electric bass is due to the versatile electronics. The rich sound spectrum is supported by the 5-way switch, with which the two powerful Music Man neodymium humbuckers can be called up in different combinations. Maximum headroom and attention to detail when precisely adjusting the tone is promised by the 18 volt powered 3-band tone control. From typical StingRay sound to authentic single coil simulation, no wish remains unfulfilled! A tasteful detail are also the potentiometer caps of the equalizer made of intensively drawn ebony.
