    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man 30th Anniversary StingRay5 Five-String Electric Bass Guitar:

    Everything about this bass is very near perfection! The 34" scale and the string spacing are familiar. The attention to detail is greatly appreciated. The bass arrived and it was set up and adjusted perfectly. I really like their attitude that the customer is not the quality control department. The frets are perfect, the finish is gorgeous and the tone is to die for. I love everything about it! It is a bit expensive but in my opinion it is worth every cent. If you are on the fence about buying it, DO IT you won't regret it for a second!!

          Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man 30th Anniversary StingRay5 Five-String Electric Bass Guitar:

          I had been eyeballing one of these for a few months and finally pulled the trigger. I received the bass a couple weeks ago and have a couple practices and a gig on it. Plays great, and sounds great. While the low B might not sound quite as good as a 35" scale it still sounds amazing. I think that my only complaint with the bass is that I was expecting more flame or birdseye in the neck/fretboard. The one I received has no flame and very little birdseye. Only a cosmetic thing, but it was something that was unexpected.
