Introducing the 2023 Ball Family Reserve "Shadow Korina" DarkRay, an exceptional bass that builds upon the foundation of the original.  Limited to 100 units worldwide, each bass includes a Mono case and numbered certificate of authenticity. Experience the pinnacle of craftsmanship and sonic versatility in this exclusive instrument. 

This bass features a Darkglass 2 EQ preamp with alpha and omega distortions, a sleek black limba body, roasted maple neck and fretboard, and stainless steel frets.  It plays amazingly well, just like you'd expect a Music Man Stingray to be, and has the added feature of the Darkglass electronics.  

The finish on this one is unique, as it's gunstock oil and a hand-rubbed special wax blend.  There's not great way to describe how it feels, other than a single word: smooth.  The masters craftspeople at Music Man absolutely nailed it.

This is a Limited Edition model, with only 100 made for the whole world.  We were thrilled to get one, but we only have one - so once it's gone, it's gone for good.  A numbered Certificate of Authenticity is included.  The bass comes in a special Mono case, which in itself is a great value.

Come to Truetone Music today to check it out, or order right here to be shipped to your home.
