In 1987 Ernie Ball Music Man created the legendary StingRay 5 bass, setting the standard for the modern 5-string bass. The 35th Anniversary edition honors the timeless Ernie Ball Music Man design that has been used by some of the world’s most iconic bassists. The ash body features a spalted maple top with thin maple veneer and comes standard with a Spalted Sunburst finish. The roasted figured maple neck features an ebony fretboard, copper pearlescent block inlays and is finished in a high gloss for superb comfort and playability. High-output neodymium StingRay 5 pickups provide powerful low-end with a distinctive mid-range punch while the lightweight hardware delivers solid stability.
Limited to 225 single-humbucker and 25 dual-humbucker models, every 35th Anniversary StingRay 5 includes a certificate of authenticity.
The 35th-anniversary edition is an actual work of art with a premium ash body featuring a maple-veneered Spalted Sunburst maple top. The roasted maple neck and ebony fretboard are adorned with copper pearlescent block inlays, and the entire front and back of the flame-figured neck are buffed to a striking high gloss finish.
The SR5’s robust low-end and fat, punchy midrange is world-famous. The low “B” string is most revered as it remains tight and full at a popular 34” scale length. This 35th SR5 faithfully recreates this iconic tone utilizing powerful neodymium magnets delivering more output and a wider range of frequencies.
An 18-volt 3-Band EQ preamp is utilized for extra clean headroom, letting you dial in a wide range of popular bass tones from modern punch to classic vintage without clipping or distortion.
This StingrRay 5 is brand new and in factory fresh condition, with no dings, dents, fretwear, or shop wear. It will come with the original EBMM-branded Mono Case, factory packaging, and legendary DuBaldo Music Center case candy.
