Killer electronics for super-punchy bass sound

From the very first time you plug in your Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 Classic, you'll appreciate the phenomenal low-end punch its lone soapbar-style humbucking pickup delivers. Granted, the extra-stout pole pieces and wide windings provided by this alnico pickup contribute a solid basis for your tone, but its the StingRay 5 Classic's active preamp and 2-band EQ really that let you sculpt your sound. As a result, everyone from shoegazer-era rockers to funk masters have enjoyed the extreme punch this amazing instrument has to offer.

Extra-beefy yet totally playable neck feels amazing

There's simply no substitute for a great neck. Ernie Ball Music Man put a ton of work into developing a neck that would provide you with the perfect balance of comfort, speed, and stability. The StingRay 5 Classic's 1-3/4" nut gives you plenty of room to play and the 7.5" radius fingerboard is incredibly easy on your fingers. Finished with gunstock oil and a hand-rubbed special wax blend, the back of the StingRay 5 Classic's neck feels amazing and lets you hand glide along effortlessly. And with its 6-bolt attachment, this bolt-on neck delivers stability that easily surpasses most set necks.

Loaded with StingRay style, sound, and innovation

Armed with a fat and punchy humbucker, 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.
