Toned, trimmed, and dressed for success

For the body, the StingRay HT features alder for a fantastic tonal balance and impressive lightweight feel that’s made for long performances. A 5-bolt sculpted joint bridges the maple neck and handsome ebony fingerboard to the body, showcasing 22 high-profile stainless-steel frets marked by white pearloid atlante blocks and trimmed in pearloid binding all the way up to the body-matching headstock. Coated in a high gloss polyester finish, you’ll find this axe to be much less phased by common scratches and dings — perfect for the road! 

Special heat-treated pickup

This guitar gets the “HT” in its name from Ernie Ball’s ingenious heat-treated engineering. Heat treatment increases the output of the pickup while simultaneously improving the pickup’s dynamic range. What that means for your sound is a stronger low end with greater frequency response, resulting in a fuller, rounded out, and more present tone. This technological chase for an increase in responsiveness is inspired by the same process used in Ernie Ball’s Slinky string development, so you can rest easy knowing that your StingRay setup is meant for true compatibility with your strings.
