Music Man Stingray5 30th Anniversary Edition, Premium Grade 5-String Bass Guitar in Translucent Buttercream, with Rosewood Fretboard

Originally unveiled to the music world in 1987, the Stingray 5 was actually the first bass designed from the ground up by Ernie Ball Music Man. Since its release, the Singray has been the industry standard for extended range basses. A powerful punchy sound combined with the extra flexibility of a fifth string makes this bass one for the ages.

Happy Birthday StingRay

In celebration of the StingRay's 30th Anniversary, Music Man have released this stunning, limited run StingRay 5, sporting a gorgeous transparent buttercream finish, red tortoise shell pickguard, and a gorgeous roasted maple neck.

The Rosewood fingerboard is accented with a white binding, white fret dots, and stainless steel frets.

As if that wasn't enough, the preamp and pickup on this bass are exclusive to these 30th Anniversary models, and provide you with ample punch and added articulation.

Industry-Standard 5-String for more than 30 years!

With the Music Man Stingray5 you get a premium-grade 5-string bass guitar with a smooth-contoured Ash body, an Alnico-pole humbucker pickup, a highly-playable maple neck, 3-band EQ with active preamp, and a stunning white finish. This bass certainly has plenty of appeal, and would fit nicely into the collection of any low-end enthusiast.

Powerful Wide Pole Humbucker

Featuring strong, clear lows and a precise high end, this specially designed Alnico-pole humbucker really helps your Stingray5 to sing, and is covered with a soapbar style pickup shield. Combined with the active 3-band EQ, the array of tonal options at your fingertips is as versatile and varied as you could ever wish for.
