An accurate version of the popular MusicMan StingRay design.

The Sterling RAY35 5-string bass guitar features a select solid swamp ash body for percussive lows, subtle mids, and expansive highs. Lightweight swamp ash brings out the nuances and clarity that MusicMan basses are known for. Combined with a MusicMan-designed active 3-band preamp you get all the tonal variations you could ever need. A single MusicMan Humbucking pickup has alnico pole pieces for classic warm tones. A 3-way switch lets you select both coils in series, in series with filter, and both coils parallel. The MusicMan-designed 6-bolt neck joint for all the Sterling RAY34 and 35 basses that are strong and stable with no shift in the neck pocket for superior tone transfer. The MusicMan-designed bridge uses a thick saddle for precise adjustments and stability. Precise slotting on each saddle guarantees no sideways movement on the bass strings during heavy playing.

    Comments about Sterling by Music Man RAY35 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    They are built very well and the sound is true to a US made Stingrays or Sterlings. I like the feel of the neck and the 6 bolt construction is very sturdy. The EQ is effective and sounds good; true sizzle on the treble. I got the natural Ray 35 with the 3 way switch is a nice touch for a few extra tones. The only con is I find it a bit heavy.
