Introducing the StingRay 5 Special by Music Man, a bass guitar designed to meet the demands of today's discerning players while staying true to its iconic roots.

Modernised Performance: The StingRay 5 Special is optimised for modern musicians. With a sculpted neck joint, players experience unrestricted access to all 22 stainless steel frets on the roasted maple neck. Enhanced body contours provide maximum comfort in any playing position, ensuring that musicians can play for hours on end while preserving the revered StingRay sound.

Enhanced Electronics: The StingRay 5 Special features improved electronics, offering a new level of versatility. Equipped with powerful neodymium magnets, it delivers more output and a wider range of sounds, from modern punch to classic vintage tones. The 3-way switch allows players to configure the wiring of the coils to either be in series, in series with a filter - giving a thinner sound that is reminiscent of a single-coil, or in parallel. The 18-volt 3-Band preamp offers extra clean headroom, allowing musicians to fine-tune their sound to perfection.

Lighter and Balanced: Musicians will appreciate the StingRay 5 Special's reduced weight, thanks to select body woods, improved contours, and lightweight hardware. This results in a more balanced instrument that feels comfortable to play, even during extended gigs.

Reliable Tuning: Say goodbye to tuning woes. The re-engineered lightweight tuning machines not only keep the bass in tune but also provide a balanced neck, ensuring that musicians can play confidently without constant adjustments.

Iconic Legacy: The StingRay 5 Special carries the legacy of the original StingRay, first introduced in 1976. It retains the signature features that made it an icon - solid, roadworthy construction, the iconic oval pickguard, 3+1 tuning key configuration, and the ever-popular Music Man humbucker. These features combine to deliver a look, feel, and sound that's unmistakably StingRay.

The StingRay 5 Special by Music Man is not just a bass; it's a timeless classic with a modern twist. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting your musical journey, this bass guitar will inspire your creativity and deliver the legendary StingRay sound. Upgrade your playing experience with the StingRay 5 Special today and become part of its remarkable legacy.
