I knew what I wanted sonically, functionally, aesthetically, and I knew that Ernie Ball Music Man could deliver it. It plays better than any guitar I’ve ever owned, stays in tune no matter how much abuse I throw at it, and the vintage tint neck, classic color and matte finish look amazing.
The Dustin Kensrue StingRay includes a lightweight African mahogany body in an exclusive Dark Tobacco Burst satin finish, custom wound Ernie Ball Music Man humbucking and single coil pickups. A stacked tone and volume knob with a 3-way pickup selector, control bypass with stereo out, satin vintage tint maple neck with 22 stainless steel frets, and a super smooth 5-bolt neck joint with a custom laser etched artist series neck plate.
The stereo jack system allows me to essentially control my pickup selection with my pedalboard, which lets me focus on singing and performing.
