Roasted Maple Neck with 22 Stainless Steel Frets
The maple used for the neck is processed using a tightly controlled heating and cooling cycle. Moisture is removed from the wood, and the material becomes lighter, stiffer and more stable. The color becomes a deeper golden brown, and the grain has more dramatic figure. The wood cells are opened and the resins within the wood dried, producing a better sounding material. The roasting makes the wood more resonant and responsive. The feel of oiled and waxed wood is improved, as it becomes less affected by moisture. The stainless steel frets are harder and corrosion resistant. This material resists wear far beyond traditional Nickel Silver and has a smoother feel.
Neodymium Magnet Humbucker with 18 Volt Preamp
Neodymium magnets are stronger than Alnico or ceramic magnets of comparable size and weight. The increased strength of the magnetic field applies to guitar pickups in making them more sensitive and higher output. The higher output requires less gain, which means lower noise. The 18-volt 3-Band preamp provides extra clean headroom without clipping and less distortion. The preamp is re-voiced to still be able achieve modern and vintage StingRay tones.
Expanded Body Contour with Sculpted 5-Bolt Heel Joint
The contouring of the StingRay Special is all about comfort and playability. The arm contour is less like a one directional ramp, and more spherical to allow for a comfortable place to rest your forearm at any angle. The 5-bolt neck joint combined with the neck joint contour improves fret access with an ergonomic carve that matches the shape of the players palm when in the upper registers.
