Music Man Announces Anniversary/Limited Edition Instruments

November 28, 2005

The 30th Anniversary StingRay will feature a mahogany body (a first for any Music Man production instrument) with a translucent red finish, figured maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Tipping its hat to the original design, Music Man will offer a strings-thru-the body bridge, along with a buffed polyester finish on the back of the neck. At the heart of this Anniversary model is the distinctive Music Man humbucking pickup and 3 band EQ, providing bassists the widest possible frequency response and a fat full sound. A special custom-made neckplate will commemorate this bass, along with custom 30th Anniversary logo and graphics.

The 20th Anniversary Silhouette will feature a figured maple top with a 3-ply black, natural, black veneer underneath. Standard features include a maple neck with the option of a rosewood or maple fingerboard and Music Man Vintage Tremolo or fixed bridge. It also includes rear-mounted electronics, buttercream position markers, a custom neck plate and 20th Anniversary logo.

Limited Edition
Music Man introduces the 4th installment of its special-run Limited Edition series with an all black finish and custom gold hardware package. Available for a limited time only, this latest offering includes all Music Man models except for the SUB series, Silhouette Bass, Steve Morse Y2D, Benji Madden signature and all left-handed instruments. Gold hardware includes the bridge, tuning keys, neck plate, tremolo arms, control knobs and pickguard screws. An all black headstock with a gold Music Man logo will match the hardware and overall theme. These Limited Edition instruments will also feature a special 2006 Limited Edition gold silkscreen just below the neckplate. A custom pickguard, rosewood fretboard and Limited Edition case will round out the package.
