Classic StingRay5 sound and style with enhanced comfort and balance.

The Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay5 Special HH 5-string electric bass puts a modern spin on the original StingRay bass that has been a rock and indie staple since its 1987 debut. With its dual humbucker pickups and 18V preamp, the StingRay5 Special HH delivers the iconic, punchy StingRay tone with expanded tonal versatility. Its contoured hardwood body provides playing comfort while reducing weight and the roasted maple neck offers fluid playability all the way up the 22 stainless steel frets. For bassists who crave the famous StingRay sound with modern appointments, the StingRay5 Special HH is a powerful, expressive and comfortable 5-string bass.

Achieve Iconic Tone and Versatility With Dual Humbuckers and 18V Preamp

The StingRay5 Special HH takes the StingRay's distinctive punchy sound to new levels with its dual humbucker pickups. Custom wound with neodymium magnets, they produce full lows, snarling mids and crisp highs with higher output than vintage StingRays. An updated 18V preamp with 3-band EQ gives you the versatility to dial in everything from warm, vintage tones to modern aggressive sounds. Sculpt your ideal bass sound, from thumpy retro funk to the cutting edge.

Play All Night With a Lightweight, Contoured Body

The StingRay5 Special HH is designed for playing comfort. Its contoured select hardwood body is lightweight to reduce fatigue and carefully shaped with enhanced curves that fit your body in any playing position. The sculpted neck joint provides easy access to the highest frets, while the smooth neck back feels natural against your hand. The narrow 1.75" nut suits most playing styles. Relax into the StingRay5 Special HH and play with ease all night long.

Fluid Playability With Roasted Maple Neck and Stainless Steel Frets

The StingRay5 Special HH combines speed and performance with its slick roasted maple neck and stainless steel frets. The roasted maple offers stability and focused midrange tone. Its satin finish allows effortless movement up and down the neck. The 22 stainless steel frets provide excellent sustain and hold up to aggressive fingering. Together they make this bass fast and fluid so you can play with precision at any tempo.

Take It Anywhere With a Lightweight Custom Gig Bag

The StingRay5 Special HH comes complete with a custom gig bag so you can take this bass anywhere with protection and convenience.
