The modern electric bass guitar has a rich history that can be traced back to the "Golden Era" of instrument manufacturing in the 20th century. During this time, pioneers in guitar and bass manufacturing created iconic solid body concepts, resulting in some of the world's most beloved instrument designs. To honor these timeless designs, we present to you the BFR Stingray Retro Seventy-Six.
This all-new Stingray Retro 76' is designed to celebrate Music Man's 70's era of American craftsmanship, incorporating many vintage-inspired specifications. The bass guitar features a stunning nitro-finished 3-tone Sunburst ash body with large black, yellow, and red swatches, perfectly capturing the look and feel of Music Man's flagship 4-string bass. As a faithful reproduction, this retro edition bass replicates the original specifications of the Stingray, including an Alnico-loaded humbucking pickup, a 2-band preamp, a 21-fret 3-Bolt maple neck with micro-tilt adjustment, and a strings-thru-the-body bridge with adjustable mute pads. Overall, it's a classic-feeling and -sounding vintage-inspired instrument that offers the best of old-world craftsmanship with contemporary playability and reliability. The BFR Stingray Retro 76' bass comes with a period-correct tolex case, a certificate of authenticity, and is limited to only 100 pieces worldwide.
