It's hard not to feel like one of the coolest guys in the room with one of these bad boys in your hands. The sleek and jazzy vintage design of the StingRay SR50 is sure to attract potential buyers looking for something to update to an intermediate level of playing, with special interest going to the guitar's body being made of African mahogany. The bolt-on neck and bulky tuners could potentially turn-off vintage purists, but they'll be missing out on an affordable deal that's been thoughtfully updated. The Ernie Ball Music Man Spec humbuckers will at least be worth looking into for fans of heavier tones. This is a Sam Ash employee review.
