Modern Upgrades

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 for increased playability.

Neodymium Humbuckers

In place of the more traditional Alnico, the humbuckers on this BFR StingRay HH come equipped with Neodymium magnets, mounted directly to the body.

This particular metal has a much stronger magnetic pull than Alnico, resulting in a more articulate sound when you play.

In addition to this the 5-way pickup selector allows you to choose from five different humbucker and single coil pickup voicing combinations, giving you plenty of tonal options to play around with.

Complimenting these newly designed pickups is a powerful 18v preamp, in place of the usual 9v electronics, delivering extra headroom and a much more powerful sound than ever before.
