StingRay Tone Meets Reduced-scale Playability

The look and tone of the StingRay bass series come to an easier-playing design in the Ernie Ball Music Man BFR StingRay Short Scale bass. Whether you're a bass player looking for greater comfort and reach or a guitar player who wants an easier transition between instruments, you'll find it in this Ball Family Reserve bass. The BFR StingRay Short Scale's lightweight, resonant ash body is more than matched by its select maple neck, which, together, provide loads of natural snap and sustain on top of sworn-by reduced-scale playability. Beyond that, the BFR StingRay Short Scale's easy-playing neck and fingerboard boast an eye-grabbing figured look. A single bridge humbucker delivers the punch and dynamics you need to reach deep into the pocket of a groove or rise above a mix. Handcrafted by the elite luthiers at Ernie Ball Music Man, the BFR StingRay Short Scale is limited to only 106 electric basses worldwide, so you’d better reserve yours now!
