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:

    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...

            I've had the opportunity to play two of this awesome basses, one was a Stingray 5 H. I really loved the sound, the quality, the bass frequencies and the middle you can add, also the treble. I used to play Caribbean Rythms and also Rock.
            The second time one friend lend me his Stingray 5 HH, i felt the most amazing sound i've heard coming from a bass, i used to record two songs with my band, i loved everything in it.
            I'm planning to buy a HH but I wanna know the diference between it and H, anyone could suggest me?

              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!

              Love this 5 string bass. 2 criticisms: a) B string was dead on arrival. Other strings were fine. b) there were no tools included to adjust bridge and truss rod. Suprising for what I consider to be a high end bass

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

              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.
