The Stringray bass was introduced in 1976 and has since become Music Man's most iconic instrument. As a result of a 10 year non-complete clause signed by Leo Fender when he sold Fender to CBS in 1965, Fender did not start building new instruments in ernest until the mid-'70s. The Stringray is an absolutely central example of Fender's initial reemergence, and features a hard maple fingerboard as well as innovative active electronics. Leo Fender parted ways with Music Man by 1979 which makes the earliest Stringrays the most highly prized.
