Manufacturer's Description from Music Man

CALIFORNIA HERITAGE SINCE 1974

Originally founded in 1974, Music Man built its name leading an industry revolution, introducing active electronics on its production instruments. As part of the team during the 70’s, Sterling Ball played an important role in the design and development of the iconic StingRay basses.

Officially purchasing the company in 1984, Sterling, joined later by his sons Scott and Brian, has built a team of dedicated professionals who collectively share a common goal: building the highest level of hand-crafted instruments available.
