With the Music Man StingRay5 Special 5-String Bass, seen here with a sleek Black finish and with Matte Black hardware, you get a modern take on one of the most iconic 5-strings ever made.

A Legendary 5-String, With A Modern Makeover!

There are many reasons why the StingRay has been the bass of choice for many of the world's top musicians over the past four decades.

With their high levels of playability combined with power and articulation, these incredible instruments have helped shape an entire generation of music hits.

Music Man StingRay5 Special 5-String Bass MN, Black Highlights

  • Modern upgrade to the industry-standard 5-string bass
  • Select Roasted Maple neck with Roasted Maple fingerboard
  • Humbucker pickup with 18v 3-band active EQ, and 3-way voicing selector switch for extra versatility
  • Lightweight, well-contoured body offers a supremely comfortable playing experience
  • Black body finish with a black pickguard
  • Includes hardshell case

Sleek New Design

Featuring a rock-solid construction, slim-contoured body, active 18v 3-band EQ, sleek and comfortable neck profile, and a powerful neodymium humbucker, the new StingRay Special is quite possibly the best StingRay ever produced.

Modern upgrades on the StingRay Special include a Roasted Maple neck and fingerboard, Matte Black hardware, sculpted neck joint, and the afore-mentioned pickup, all of which come together for a much-improved playing experience.

Neodymium Pickup

In place of the more traditional Alnico magnet humbucker, Music Man have opted for Neodymium magnets in their StingRay Special lineup.

As Neodymium has a much stronger magnetic pull than Alnico, you can be sure of a much more articulate sound, with each nuance of your playstyle being evident.

Excellent Electronics

This is also helped by the 18v preamp built into the StingRay Special Lineup, giving you a much more powerful sound than ever before, whilst retaining that vintage StingRay tone.

In addition to this, the StingRay5 Special comes equipped with a 3-way selector switch too. This switch changes the voicing of the pickup, giving you the option of a traditional humbucker, single coil, and a series humbucker (similar to a P-bass split coil) sound.
