Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 Special Burnt Apple

Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 Special in Burnt Apple

 

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. Reengineered lightweight tuning machines create a more balanced neck while still providing ultra-reliable tuning stability.
