Ryan ‘Fluff’ Bruce, guitarist of Dragged Under and the face of the Riffs, Beards and Gear YouTube channel, has become the latest YouTube star to join the Ernie Ball Music Man artist lineup, with the US high-end electric guitar brand unveiling a signature StingRay RS.

Available in a choice of the disco-friendly Aqua Sparkle or retro-cool Tealy Dan finishes, with the latter sporting an ebony fingerboard, the former roasted figured maple, the Ryan ‘Fluff’ Bruce StingRay RS is a typical EBMM – a head-turning build with a sound that should pair nicely for lots of styles.
