With the Music Man BFR StingRay5, seen here with a stunning Root Beer Red finish, you get a limited edition take on what many regard as the Industry Standard 5-String Bass.
Limited Edition 5-String StingRay
The Ball Family Reserve (BFR) collection was created by Music Man to celebrate their heritage in instrument craftsmanship, and features guitars and basses made from some of the finest figured tone woods and finishes available.
These ultra-rare guitars are available as part of limited production runs, allowing members of the public the chance at owning models previously reserved for Music Man artists and family members.
Music Man BFR StingRay5 5-String Bass, Root Beer Red Highlights
- Limited edition, modern take on a 5-string classic
- Lightweight, comfortably-curved Ash body, with a Root Beer Red finish
- Bolt on Roasted Maple neck with a slim profile, allows for fast-and fluid playstyles
- 22-fret Rosewood fingerboard
- Powerful humbucker pickup and 18v preamp offers superior volume and clarity, even at extreme volume levels
- Includes fitted hardshell case
Featuring a comfortably-carved, lightweight Ash body, and a sleek, Roasted Maple neck, this BFR StingRay5 is a genuine pleasure to play, whatever your playstyle.
During the roasting process, all moisture and impurities are removed from the Maple, ultimately strengthening the wood and resulting in a much smoother playing surface.
The neck is capped with a sleek Ebony fingerboard too, bringing the whole ensemble together for a genuinely comfortable playing experience.
As a finishing touch, the body has been given a Root Beer Red finish, giving you a bass that will truly help you stand out from the crowd.
In place of the more traditional Alnico, the humbucker on this BFR StingRay5 comes equipped with Neodymium magnets.
This particular metal has a much stronger magnetic pull than Alnico, resulting in a more articulate sound when you play.
Complimenting this newly designed pickup is a powerful 18v preamp, in place of the usual 9v electronics, delivering extra headroom and a much more powerful sound than ever before.
As stated above, this incredible bass is available in severely limited numbers, in other words: once it's gone, it's gone!
