Make Way for the New StingRay5 Specials
First introduced in 1987, the StingRay5 has become one of the most iconic 5-string basses in history. For 2018, the StingRay5 has been reimagined with new features and appointments that provide a new level of playing comfort while retaining that revered iconic StingRay5 sound. The StingRay5 Special lineup all share the same exciting updates and enhancements. They are divided into single- or dual-humbucking versions with a choice of fingerboard material: maple, rosewood or ebony. It's never been a better time to make your groove with Music Man.
Less Weight, More Performance
A key to success is feel. And the new StingRay5 Special feels better than ever. It's light, smooth and everything a bassist could ask for in terms of playability. Featured revisions include an enhanced contour that is rounded for more comfort in any playing position, a sculpted neck joint for uninhibited upper fret access to all 22 stainless steel frets, and lightweight aluminum hardware providing a lighter, more balanced instrument.
Sonic Power to Spare
Sound matters, and the new and improved StingRay5 Special features powerful neodymium magnets for higher output and a new 18-volt 3-band preamp for extra clean headroom without clipping. Solid roadworthy construction, elegant oval pickguard, 4+1 tuning key configuration, and the ever popular Music Man humbucker, all together produce a look, feel and sound that is remarkably unmistakable. Each StingRay5 Special comes with a hardshell case.
