New Sterling Pete Wentz StingRay Bass announced. Pete Wentz, the co-founder and bassist of Fall Out Boy, is an enduring icon in the world of punk rock and pop punk music.
Pete Wentz StingRay
This Sterling Pete Wentz bass is not only a workhorse but also a testament to Wentz’s distinctive style. His latest creation, the Artist Series StingRay, pays homage to his roots while embracing modern playability.
It follows on from the DarkRay released earlier this month and is another great-looking, affordable bass model.
Pete Wentz’s style shines through with a custom loon inlay, black hardware, and a striking gold pickguard. Whether you’re jamming in a garage or headlining stadium tours, this StingRay captures the versatile, dynamic sound that embodies Pete’s rebellious spirit.
Made to Pete’s Exact Specifications
Available in Black or Fiesta Red, this signature StingRay is tailored to Wentz’s exact specifications. It offers fans the opportunity to wield the same bass guitar that Wentz has been playing on the Fall Out Boy ’23/24 worldwide So Much For (Tour) Dust headline tour.
Tested on the Road
Wentz himself attests to the StingRay’s durability on the road, saying, “On this tour, these basses come backstage, they go out – I play at the front of the house or I go out and play near the lawn, and they’ve held up for all that.”
Simple, Yet Powerful Electronics
As Sterling by Music Man’s first full-scale passive bass, the electronics are straightforward – an Alnico V humbucker linked to master tone and volume controls.
A Personal Touch to Design
Pete Wentz’s design references for this bass were drawn from various sources, including watches and skateboards. He emphasizes the importance of simplicity and quality ingredients in design.
As part of the launch, Sterling by Music Man has teamed up with Reverb to offer 50 exclusive limited-edition Pete Wentz autographed basses. Pete Wentz believes that punk rock should be accessible, making this bass a unique opportunity for fans.
