OVERVIEW

A classic with updated electronics and more comfortable feel.

First introduced in 1987, the StingRay5 has become one of the most iconic bass guitars in history. For 2018, the StingRay5 has been reimagined with new features and appointments that provide a new level of playing comfort while retaining that revered iconic StingRay5 sound. Featured revisions include an enhanced contour that is rounded for more comfort in any playing position, a sculpted neck joint for uninhibited upper fret access to all 22 stainless steel frets, and lightweight aluminum hardware providing a lighter more balanced instrument.

The new and improved StingRay5 Special electronics feature more powerful neodymiummagnets for increased output and a new 18-volt preamp for extra clean headroom without clipping. Solid roadworthy construction, elegant pickguard, 4+1 tuning key configuration, and the ever popular Music Man humbucking pickup, all of which combined produce a look, feel and sound that is remarkably unmistakable. Includes hardshell case.

FEATURES
  • Ash body with gloss polyester finish
  • Roasted maple neck with maple fingerboard and 1.75" nut
  • Single humbuckers with Neodymium magnets and 18 volt, active EQ
  • Music Man vintage bridge and custom Music Man tuners
