The Music Man StingRay bass was first introduced in 1987 and quickly became a highly sought-after instrument due to its exceptional design, tone, and playability. The bass was specifically designed for extended scale playing, and it quickly gained popularity among bassists across various music genres.
Today, the StingRay 5 Special bass builds on the innovative design and driven spirit of the original 1980s model with some added features and appointments. One of the key features of the StingRay 5 Special is its double-cutaway body, which is not only visually appealing but also provides excellent comfort and balance for the player. The body is further enhanced by a smooth roasted maple neck that feels great in the hands.
The rosewood fingerboard on the StingRay 5 Special is especially fast and effortless to play, making it perfect for bassists who require speed and precision. Additionally, the bass features a single humbucking pickup with Neodymium magnets, which delivers a punchy tone that's perfect for grooving along in a set.
The StingRay 5 Special also comes equipped with an eighteen-volt three-band active EQ preamp, which gives the player the power to sculpt a spectrum of bass tones to their liking. This makes it easy to create the ideal sound to match any musical style or genre.
