BFR Ernie Ball Music Man StingRay 5 HS
I've decided to let this amazing bass go. I've been more into passive basses lately and I can't afford to have this nice of a bass that I'm not playing. It plays and sounds fantastic, and comes with the original hard shell case. I've attached some pictures of when I received the bass. It's still in great condition, the only flaws would be a little dent/mark down by the bottom strap peg, and a little piece of plastic missing from the side of the nut(it arrived that way) but neither effect the sound or playability. I can take pictures of those areas tonight.
These are incredibly rare, they only made these available for order for one month a few years back. They sold for around $2,000 and I'm willing to let mine go for $1400 shipped in the lower 48 states.
Hit me up with any questions!:bassist:

This has an All Rosewood neck, that's what makes it a BFR!

Here are some pics that show any flaws I could find.

I had a BFR rosewood 5 and it was sweet, never should have sold it. It was a step above any SR5 I've owned or played.
What's she weigh?
|MingusBass ||12-18-2012 05:30 PM |
Using the bathroom scale, right around 10lbs.

Do you still have the MM? would you consider trading for a German made Warwick $$ 5 ? 2008 in great shape..
|MingusBass ||12-20-2012 03:48 AM |
Bass is still available. Sorry, no trades at this time unless someone has a US Lakland Glaub/JO or Dunn model.

What year is it?
|MingusBass ||12-20-2012 10:33 AM |
It's a few years old, these were only available to order for one month.

Bump it! This bass has got to go, too nice to sit around!
|MingusBass ||12-23-2012 05:06 PM |

I have a few dumb questions, thought I would ask in the thread so others can learn too. :)
Alnico pickups, correct?
What tonal difference does the all-rosewood neck make? Is there a separate fingerboard, or is the whole neck a solid slab of rosewood?
Also, can the HS duplicate *ALL* the settings of the H? If not, what's missing?
|MingusBass ||12-28-2012 12:11 PM |
Alnico pickups for sure.
It looks like solid rosewood to me, and I actually prefer the HS to the HH, I've owned both. The neck pickup is a little muddy on the HH, IMO. You can get a decent Jazz vibe on the HS. I don't think you're missing a thing with the HS. :)

Bump, I will consider offers. Happy new year!
