This vintage 1976 Music Man Stingray I is an intriguing piece of Leo Fender history. Leo was brought on as President of the Music Man company to design a line of guitars and basses, and this was one of the first instruments released. Touted by Leo as the next evolution of the Stratocaster, the guitar sports a two-piece ash body with two active humbucking pickups. This is the missing link between Leo’s designs with Fender, and his later work with G&L, and is a great example of his quirky mid-century modern design style. Don’t miss a unique opportunity to own a piece of electric guitar history.
The guitar features two Music Man humbucking pickups with non-adjustable pole pieces; active controls: master volume, master tone, 4-way pickup selector, pickup coil splitter; this particular Stingray 1 weighs 8.12 lbs.
