This beautiful Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray Classic 5 is in their Vintage Sunburst finish, with Figured Maple Neck and Maple Fretboard.
The Stingray is one of the most legendary basses in the music industry. As Leo Fender launched Music Man after selling Fender, the Stingray was born as the next evolutionary step in Electric Bass design from the legendary P-Bass, introducing a single humbucker and an active preamp to a vintage voice.
If one were to imagine a 5 string bass built in the 1970's, the picture would look much like the Classic Stingray 5. The Classic Stingray 5 pays tribute to the original Music Man bass designs from the mid to late 1970's with added modern refinements. String-through body bridge, mute kit, small profile nickel frets and a curvy 7.5" radius neck are key specifications that harken back to the early days of Music Man production. A modern six bolt neck attachment and an easy access truss rod adjustment wheel ensure solid construction with no hassle adjustments. The Classic's tone remains true to the original with an ash body, 2 band EQ and a standard Music Man Alnico pickup.
