Manufacturer's Description from Music Man

A short-scale with long-scale tone and versatility.

The Ernie Ball Music Man short scale Stingray Special bass offers a big thumpy round sound in a convenient smaller package. Its 30" scale length allows for easier playability due to the shorter spacing between the frets. The body is made from ash, and the neck is constructed from hard rock maple with a rosewood fingerboard.

The Ernie Ball Music Man short scale is outfitted with a humbucking pickup with higher output neodymium magnets that were specially designed for the short scale bass. This gives this bass its signature warm tone. The electronics package includes a 3-way rotary switch featuring parallel, true single coil and series modes. All three pickup selections audio signals can be augmented by a 20db boost found by engaging the push volume pot. 

Like its big brother the Stingray Special, the short scale bass comes standard with a modern classic bridge, 22 stainless steel frets and lightweight Music Man tuning machines with a finer gear ratio.
