Musicman stingray dating
In December 1978, a two-pickup bass was introduced called the Sabre (discontinued in 1991).
Given this climate, the Sting Ray guitar was quietly dropped from the line. Music Man's remaining physical assets were sold on June 1, 1984.The Sting Ray Bass featured a single large humbucking pickup (located somewhat toward but not adjacent to the bridge) with a two-band fixed-frequency EQ. Basses were produced in fretted and fretless versions.Tom Walker played a large part in the design of the bass preamp.Ball's partner in this company was George Fullerton.The factory, which Ball still owned at the time of the Music Man purchase, was located in San Luis Obispo, California and that is where Music Man started producing basses in 1985.
These instruments were designed by Fender and White.
