From Tomm Stanley of Stonefield:

The Stinger was born of my love for the sound of chords played in the second octave of a bass. For some time I'd considered creating an instrument that took advantage of that voice. Based on player feedback from NAMM, I'm really glad I decided to do it. We brought three with us to NAMM and left with none. I suspect if I'd have had ten on hand I might only have had a couple left over.

Specs on the Stinger:
-20-inch scale length
-Three-piece laminated maple bolt-on neck
-Indian ebony fingerboard
-Uses a mix of bass and guitar strings (.085 to .013)
-Uses bass electronics
-Tuned in the guitar register with the same standard tuning as a guitar (eadgbe)
-Alder body core
-Maple and walnut options for the top wood
