Exceptional bass tone in a gorgeous ash body with classic Music Man features.
Part of Music Man's Classic Collection, the Classic Sterling 4 electric bass guitar features many desirable appointments giving a look and soul that pays respect to design practices of the company's past. The bass comes with Music Man's chrome-plated, hardened steel bridge plate with "Classic" stainless steel saddles, adjustable mute pads, old Music Man logo, 2-band EQ, and a single humbucker.
The Classic Sterling 4 bass guitar's ash body attaches to a maple neck with a 6-bolt neck attachment, ensuring perfect alignment with no shifting. The resulting sound is strong bass tone, without any loss in articulation. The Music Man bass' 7-1/2" neck radius, 22 high-profile narrow-width frets, and 1-1/2" neck width at the nut, provide comfort and agility for your fret hand. The 2-1/2" width at the last fret provides more space for your thumping hand, so you can get fat, meaty bass pop with clear, defined attack.
Schaller BM tuners, with tapered string posts provide precision tuning, and the truss rod is adjustable, eliminating the need of removing components or strings for customization. At the heart of the Music Man Classic Sterling 4 bass lies the electronics system that provides the Music Man tone. A single standard Music Man humbucking pickup with ceramic magnets offers that thick, rich, and balanced bass tone that has made the company a leader in the low end. The Music Man bass' 2-band active preamp lets this pickup sing out, while the volume, treble, and bass controls let you pinpoint and fine-tune your ideal bass sound.
Dressed in a high-gloss polyester body finish, this Music Man Classic Sterling 4 bass is sure to get you looks from the moment you hang it around your neck, and the sound you get plugged-in will astound anyone in earshot.
