Lovies Guitars is offering up this Rad 2017 Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray 5 5 String bass in a Beautiful 3-Color Sunburst Finish! Born in the ’70s, the Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay bass has become the go-to bass for countless rockers, punks, indie bands, and many others. This model, the StingRay 5 has received impressive upgrades that set it apart from the StingRays that came before it. Stainless steel frets promise long-term durability, even under the fingers of the most aggressive players. The pickups have been redesigned for more punch and sonic range, and the updated 18-volt preamp system delivers impressive headroom for a wide dynamic range. And to help you get through long sessions more comfortably, the body has been redesigned, and lighter-weight tuning machines and hardware contribute about a pound of weight relief. From the very first time you plug in your Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5, you’ll appreciate both the phenomenal low-end punch and the massive tonal versatility its soapbar-style humbucker delivers. This neodymium pickup’s stout pole pieces and beefy windings supply a solid foundation for your tone, but it’s the StingRay 5’s 18-volt active preamp and 3-band EQ that really let you sculpt your sound. As a result, everyone from shoegaze-era rockers to funk masters can enjoy the extreme punch this instrument delivers. There’s simply no substitute for a great neck. Ernie Ball and Music Man put a ton of work into developing a neck that would provide you with the perfect balance of comfort, speed, and stability, and for this StingRay Special 5, they spec’d premium roasted maple for the neck and rosewood for the fingerboard. Finished with a blend of special wax and gunstock oil, the back of the StingRay 5’s neck plays effortlessly. And with its 5-bolt attachment, this bolt-on neck delivers stability that easily surpasses most set necks. The StingRay 5, like the rest of Ernie Ball Music Man’s StingRay bass lineup, claims roots that run back to the ’70s, when Ernie Ball Music Man was founded. Armed with fat and punchy humbuckers, active electronics, and a delightfully chunky neck, it’s no wonder the StingRay became a standard for such bass players as Guy Pratt, Cliff Williams, and Flea. And this StingRay is outfitted with a rosewood fretboard for a smooth, fast feel and added sonic attack. This instrument is in Excellent Shape with some pickguard wear, otherwise she’s MINT!
