    This bass is a great choice if you are passionate about the low-bass sound and have already mastered the 4-string. I don't recommend learning how to play bass on a 5 string bass because the B-string is like a level up, and will be hard to get used to. This bass is extremely loud! It's even loud when it's played without an amp. I ordered this bass a couple weeks ago and I was very pleased. It comes with a protective hard shell case (the StingRay 5 case shown online) and it is wrapped up and well packaged. The bass is really heavy, but that is just part of having super high quality electronics. I have the 5 HH in stealth black. Before I finally decided on stealth black, I also had other color choices in mind. Just remember that super flashy and sparkly ones may look nice now, but they might be out of fashion in a few years. JUST GO WITH A CLASSIC COLOR like black or sunburst and you won't be let down. Great bass, worth every penny.

    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 Music Man Stingray 5 HH Electric Bass:

      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!

      Comments about Music Man Stingray 5 HH Electric Bass:

      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

I don't recommend learning how to play bass on a 5 string bass because the B-string is like a level up, and will be hard to get used to. This bass is extremely loud! It's even loud when it's played without an amp. I ordered this bass a couple weeks ago and I was very pleased. It comes with a protective hard shell case (the StingRay 5 case shown online) and it is wrapped up and well packaged. The bass is really heavy, but that is just part of having super high quality electronics. I have the 5 HH in stealth black. Before I finally decided on stealth black, I also had other color choices in mind. Just remember that super flashy and sparkly ones may look nice now, but they might be out of fashion in a few years. JUST GO WITH A CLASSIC COLOR like black or sunburst and you won't be let down. Great bass, worth every penny.

        It will do whatever you want it to. Every bass sound in my head is in this bass. The 5 way pickup selection and 3 band eq make it easy to do it all. The pickup are sensitive to touch, whether digging in, thumping, slapping, picking or tapping. A good, wide, comfortable strap is a must for the weight and you'll be good to go. MM customer support is top of the line on the slim chance that you need them or just have questions.

        Buy it...NOW

        Comments about Music Man Stingray 5 HH Electric Bass:

        I have a MM 5 HH and let me tell you, I absolutely love it. I owned a Fender pre-63, and Ibanez 5 and another Fender P and this bass just makes the rest look bad. I tone quality, and the touch on ny 5 is just so smooth and precise. it's also very forgiving, after long gigs and the finger don't press hard enough, the bass still punches out good tones without the buzz. I use Ernie Ball Slinkys and the match should be and is perfect. Whether I'm doing rock, funk, or reggae, this sucker is the bomb. Matched to a Hartke twin 4-10 cabs and Hartke 2400 head, i can load up anywhere. It is pricey, but oh so worth it. I looking at the Bongo 6 now, but this bad boy is hard to put down.

        Get one for yourself and you'll see.

        The Bass. Period.

        Comments about Music Man Stingray 5 HH Electric Bass:

        I'm in the Army band. I've been rocking out in the army for two years now, and playing bass for at least 5 years before that. I'm not the most seasoned player, but I've played a lot of different basses in my time and this one really makes it hard to consider needing/wanting any other bass.

        This sucker has a full low end that does NOT stop. A tight mid that has me playing "Express Yourself" almost everytime I pick it up because it's such a strong, punchy mid! And the highs are like bells: clear and pure. When I first tested this bass I turned to my girlfriend and said," Did you hear that?!" "Hear...what?" "This note! Seriously, check this out!", and I kid you not, I probably just sat there playing a high "A" for 5 minutes straight. I couldn't believe the sound I was getting!
        The range sonically and melodically is outstanding, and overall this is just a very nice package! I have played this bass in every style, I toured it in the states, I brought it on deployment to Afghanistan, and it doesn't quit! This bass made me sell the other 5 basses I owned. Some of which had serious sentimental value...this just didn't come close to this bass!

        It's a big price, but you get a WHOLE lot of bass!
        Check it out. Play a thumping groove, hit a singing solo, do yourself a favor: give it a shot!
        You have a 5th string. 5-way pickup selecting. Active 3-band EQ.

        It's got the good essentials you need to hit a gig and hit it hard. No complaints.
        Mine was used when I bought it and doesn't look a day old...I've had it for a year!
        I am biased as a working musician and bassist. Anyone that plays the low end can tell you all of our gear is way pricier to our guitar-bretherin's prices in most everything. That being said it's common to see a 5 string costing several hundred dollars more than its 4 string counterpart.

        I got my MM Stingray5 HH used, it was half the price and played better than the freshly opened MM's on the wall that day. If the price I payed was the price everyone played, we'd all be rocking this beauty. That being said, really, the bass is worth the price. If I had to pay full price, I would have. This bass does everything.
