Music Man StingRay RS The Governor BFR

Overview by GAK

This special-edition Music Man StingRay RS features an exclusive black to silver burst “The Governor” finish and was crafted by Ernie Ball Music Man’s top luthiers. Boasting slick, comfortable playability, a big, bold tone and striking looks, this limited-run double-cut is sure to be a standout in your collection.

The Finest Tonewoods

At the heart of this Music Man Sting Ray RS’s full, resonant tone is its lightweight Okoume body, which has been carefully contoured for maximum playing comfort. Tonally, Okoume delivers a rich and warm midrange that’s akin to Mahogany. Effortless playability is catered for by the beautiful Figured Roasted Maple neck, which feels great in any hand position across the 22 stainless steel frets. The 25.5" scale neck is topped with a buttery smooth Ebony fretboard which, combined with the Roasted Maple, adds a brightness and snap to the tone that promotes note separation. The 5-bolt sculpted neck joint facilitates upper fret access, allowing you to pull off the soaring high-register bends and lead runs with ease.

Custom Wound Pickups

Electrifying this Music Man StingRay RS’s natural voice are a pair of custom-wound Music Man humbuckers. These pickups have a juicy, articulate tone and can handle anything you throw at them - from crisp funk rhythms to emotive blues leads to aggressive metal riffs.

Premium Hardware

Ernie Ball and the Ball Family Reserve are amongst the finest guitars out there, which is why they’ve equipped it with a top-notch hardware spec. A set of chrome Schaller M6-IND locking tuners handle the rock-solid tuning stability whilst the fluid Music Man Modern tremolo (with vintage bent steel saddles) allows you to execute expressive vibrato.

Ball Family Reserve

Whilst every guitar and bass that Ernie Ball Music Man makes is a high-calibre instrument, the BFR (short for Ball Family Reserve) range is the cream of the crop. BFR guitars are made in very limited numbers and celebrate Ernie Ball’s legacy of exceptional craftsmanship. These rare instruments are always made with the finest tonewoods available and adorned with exclusive finishes.
