WITH LAURELS THE SIZE OF MUSIC MAN’S, it wouldn’t be surprising if the company chose to rest on them—but they don’t. The StingRay is in an elite club: basses that are so iconic, an entire segment of bass design revolves around them. Much of Music Man’s history revolved around capitalizing on the StingRay’s superb design formula, with evolutionary updates like the 5-string and Sterling models, which added sleeker body shapes and electronics, but were still clearly based on the ’Ray. This formula was successful, but then Music Man blew everyone away with its Bongo bass—a bold leap forward in both design and intent. After this, the engineering floodgates opened, with new pickups, woods, and electronics working their way into the Music Man lineup to great acclaim. Now, with the new 25th Anniversary and Big Al basses, Music Man reinforces its commitment to new designs that integrate the brand’s classic touches in innovative and compelling ways.
