Iconic bass tone and playability from a classic design.

The Sterling by Music Man S.U.B. StingRay 5 bass brings you the iconic tone and playability of Music Man's classic StingRay bass in an affordable package. With its familiar teardrop pickguard and ergonomic offset body, the StingRay 5 feels natural in your hands. The active 2-band EQ and low-noise humbucker pickup provide that powerful, growling StingRay tone that defined a generation of bassists. The fully adjustable bridge gives you personalized control over intonation and string height for your ideal setup. Available in a variety of eye-catching finishes, the StingRay 5 lets you choose how you want to stand out on stage. The versatile sound and comfortable feel make this bass a superior choice for players of any experience level, whether practicing at home or rocking out live.

Iconic StingRay Design for Comfort and Playability

The moment you strap it on, the StingRay 5 feels familiar. Its contoured offset body and smooth neck profile make playing for long periods effortless. The slim taper neck and narrow nut width provide comfort and playability. The iconic pickguard and control layout instantly connect you to the rich legacy of the Music Man StingRay. When you pick up the StingRay 5, you'll immediately feel at home.

Powerful Active Electronics for Authentic Tone

The StingRay 5 captures that growling, punchy stingray tone that made the original a legend. The active 2-band EQ lets you shape your lows and highs to perfection. Scoop the mids and boost the lows for a dominant bottom end or add some crisp highs to cut through the mix. The low-noise humbucker pickup articulates each note with clarity and definition. Whether fingerstyle or picking, the StingRay 5 highlights the most minute details of your playing. The iconic StingRay sound is now more affordable than ever.

Fully Adjustable Bridge for Personalized Setup

The StingRay 5's heavy duty bridge allows complete control over your instrument's setup. Adjust each saddle for perfect intonation along the fingerboard. Control the individual string height and action to match your playing style. Combined with the comfortable neck profile, the adjustable bridge makes the StingRay 5 a bass that feels made just for you. Optimizing the components to your personal preferences inspires creativity and unlocks the StingRay 5's full potential.
