Ernie Ball Music Man has introduced the Short Scale StingRay bass guitar, which promises a “big thumpy round sound in a convenient smaller package.”

The new 30-inch scale model features an ash body in a high-gloss polyester finish, as well as a roasted maple neck and a fingerboard with 22 high-profile, wide stainless steel frets.

There’s also a specially designed EBMM passive humbucker equipped with higher output neodymium magnets, with a three-way switch offering parallel, true single-coil and series modes and a push/push boost volume pot.
