The original StingRay guitar was one of several that laid the foundation for our company’s long history of high-quality products. In the 70’s, two StingRay guitar versions were produced – the StingRay I had a flatter fingerboard, and the StingRay II had a rounder radius. Unfortunately, the StingRay guitar line was discontinued in 1982.

In February 2016, Ernie Ball Music man will release two new electric guitars modeled after the classic design. The StingRay and Cutlass guitars pair vintage aesthetics with the groundbreaking engineering of modern Ernie Ball Music Man guitars. The result: unmatched playability, feel and tone. “Our StingRay and Cutlass guitars are adaptations of original Music Man designs from the 1970’s and as such represent an important part of the company’s design legacy that we are proud to bring back to today’s guitarists,” said Sterling Ball. “They were built for players of all styles of music, feature unique, original body designs and offer an extraordinary level of performance at their price point.” Both models are available now. Take a look and listen below, and head to our website to learn more about ordering:
