I absolutely love this bass!!! The neck pick up can get you pretty close to a P Bass tone and the rest of them are so different from each other that you should be able to dial in exactly what you want. The feel is great - predictably AWESOME Music Man quality! JUST GET IT...you'll be happy. People say that Music Man has a signature sound (which happens to be killer) but with the extra pick up configuration, anything is possible!

I ordered this bass in stealth black with an ebony neck a few months ago. The reviews were wonderful, and the YouTube videos I watched of people playing this bass were really impressive. The bass is good quality, and it has a great sound, but I feel like it is over-priced. I thought that it would be worth every penny, but it did not turn out to be as magical as I expected. The harmonics aren't good at all on this bass. My cheap Ibanez Gio 4-string has a better sound, and I would frankly recommend investing in a Fender Precision or Fender Jazz instead. The bass is not poorly designed or anything, but there is a better option out there.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 HH 5-String Electric Bass:

      I have been looking at stingrays for years and bought "Victoria" ( ivory with maple neck and gold hardware) in December on 18 percent off sale. I have settled for less than what I really wanted on most everything my whole life 62 years, And I am glad I did not this time. I have been playing Victoria three times a week for two months now at church and this bass almost plays itself. This is the sixth bass I own and have been playing an ESP surveyor 415 for the last 5 years and I thought that neck was smooth till I played Victoria. Listen if you want an American made instrument that will last you the rest of your life quit reading reviews and buy yourself on of these in the color that pleases you and be done with it.

        This bass plays extremely well! I own several different bass guitars and this bass blows away all of them. It has a great tone and a great feel. Really solid body that looks really sharp. If you want a great overall bass that plays superb, then you should buy this one.

          Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 HH 5-String Electric Bass:

          I purchased the Stingray5 HH in ivory with a maple neck and matching headstock. I'm not usually a fan of gold hardware but the combination looked excellent. Out of the case the bass was perfect, the only issue was that the action was a little high, no big deal I thought. I adjusted the truss rod and figured that I'd let it sit a day or so to adjust and nothing. I took it to my luthier and his opinion was that the neck was back and would adjust to factory specs. I returned it Oct 26, 2016 and finally cancelled my back order Dec 20, 2016 when the new arrival date was April.

          My local GC has the same bass in stock and has the exact same adjustment issue, it might have been a bad batch from the factory, who knows.

            Hands down the best investment I've ever made. The size was a bit intimidating at first, it's the Texas of bass guitars, but I've yet to put it down. The crisp, clean tone demands attention. Very little tweaking of my head was required as this instrument cuts through the mix perfectly on its own.

              Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 HH 5-String Electric Bass:

              This is one of the best Bass Guitars I have ever laid my fingers on. There is a saying here in Tennessee, "when someone buys a Stingray Bass, they keep it". I am amazed at the tone, the feel of the neck, the "no struggle playing action", the quality of craftsmanship involved, not one flaw anywhere and, the guitar case is quality made too. Would I recommend someone layout their money for one of these?....YES. You will never have buyer remorse with this guitar. plus, it will make you become a better player. My compliments to the Ernie Ball Family...you did good!

                    This bass is great! Its sound is incredible versatile, you can play all types of music and achieve a wide variety of sounds by changing the pickups/tone settings. Without exaggerating, I would say that you can achieve at least the sound of 10 different basses with this one. It'll sound like the old school musicman stingray if you set the pickups that way, it sound really fenderish if you set it right, it sounds like an ibanez if you use the trebble wisely and so on. Excellent purchase. Worth its money too...
