Ernie Ball Music Man Dustin Kensrue StingRay Signature

Ernie Ball Music Man has joined forces with Thrice’s Dustin Kensrue on a signature StingRay electric guitar.

The guitar’s tonewoods include a lightweight African mahogany body, maple fretboard and select maple neck secured via a five-bolt, sculpted neck joint.

Highlights of this Stingray’s electronics and controls include two custom-wound pickups – a single-coil neck and humbucker bridge – stacked tone and volume knobs, and a control bypass switch with stereo out. The latter feature allows you to manage pickup selection through your pedals.
