The first bass designed by Ernie Ball Music Man, the
Stingray 5 was unveiled in 1987 and has been an industry standard for extended
range basses ever since. With its powerful punchy sound, the added flexibility
of additional pickups and a comfortably contoured body the StingRay5 satisfies
even the most demanding of players.
