Pick up a Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 H from Sweetwater, and find out what all the hype is about.

Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 H Bass at a Glance:
  • Killer electronics for super-punchy bass sound
  • Premium maple neck and fingerboard plays like butter
  • Loaded with StingRay style, sound, and innovation
Killer electronics for super-punchy bass sound

From the very first time you plug in your Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 H, you'll appreciate both the phenomenal low-end punch and the massive tonal versatility its soapbar-style humbucker delivers. Granted, this Alnico pickup's stout pole pieces and beefy windings supply a solid foundation for your tone, but it's the StingRay 5 H's active preamp and 3-band EQ that really let you sculpt your sound. As a result, everyone from shoegazer-era rockers to funk masters have enjoyed the extreme punch this amazing instrument delivers.

Premium maple neck and fingerboard plays like butter

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, and for this StingRay 5 H they spec'd premium maple for the neck and fingerboard. Perfect for sculpting a unique signature tone! Unfinished, the back of the StingRay 5 H's neck feels amazing and lets your 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

The StingRay 5 H, like the rest of Ernie Ball Music Man's StingRay bass lineup, claims roots that run back to 1971, 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 an ebony fretboard for a smooth, fast feel and added sonic attack.

Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 H Bass Features:
  • A performance-built bass any serious player can appreciate
  • A beefy humbucker plus active 3-band EQ give you fat, punchy, and versatile tone
  • Ash body and premium maple neck deliver amazing comfort and sustain
  • Sleek ebony fretboard
  • Outfitted with Schaller tuners and a hardened steel bridge for maximum stability
Get classic bass tone and modern feel with the Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 H!
