After Leo Fender sold Fender Guitars to CBS in 1965, he and many of the people who had worked with him continued designing guitars, basses and amps, resulting in the formation of Music Man (now owned by Ernie Ball). One of their earliest creations was the Sting Ray bass, the first production-model bass with active electronics.

The classic Sting Ray still incorporates many of the elements designed by Leo Fender, along with improvements such as satin-finish roated maple necks and fingerboards. Great looks, great feel and tone—hard to beat.

Why We Like Music Man

Leo Fender’s first post-Fender brand, Music Man basses (now owned and manufactured by Ernie Ball) are clearly descendants of the Fender lineage. They feel just a little heftier than their Southern California cousins. Most feature active electronics and punchy, quiet, double-coil pickups for less noise and more tonal range. We also like their great-playing necks. The feel is definitely familiar—but still distinctive from other Fender-style basses.
