SUB Ray5 – Stingray Legacy

Featuring active electronics, low-noise humbucking pickups, solid hardware and a minimalist, uncluttered look, the SUB Ray5 has a beautifully distinctive look.

The original Music Man StingRay5 bass has had a huge impact on bass players, and has been the industry-standard 5-string model for more than 30 years! A no nonsense yet eye-catching design, great tone from the onboard preamp and great pickups – what’s not to love?

Now, with the Sterling range by Music Man, you can get an authentic StingRay experience at a fraction of the cost.

Retro Features, Modern Sound

Retaining the classic Stingray look, feel and tone but in a more affordable model, the Sterling by Music Man SUB Ray5 is a fantastic bass guitar in its own right.

Looks aren’t everything, but they definitely help, and so the SUB Ray5 has kept that beautifully retro look, giving you awesome stage presence.

From its distinctive oval pickguard to the open gear tuning machines, the SUB Ray5 oozes vintage aesthetics.

Active two-band EQ coupled with low-noise humbucking pickups give you a solid, full-bodied modern bass sound that you can tailor to your own preference.

With a Maple neck and matching fretboard, fitted to the body with a classic 6-bolt neck joint, you get silky smooth playability from an extremely secure neck.
