Premium-Grade 5-String Bass

With the Music Man StingRay5 Special Black 5-String Bass you get a modern take on one of the most beloved 5-strings ever made.

In fact, the StingRay5 is so well regarded that it's been the industry-standard 5-string bass for more than three decades - and with good reason too.

Recent upgrades to this bass include a lighter, more contoured body than ever before, an 18v active preamp (as opposed to the traditional 9v), and even a select Roasted Maple Neck.

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.
