    The Music Man Classic StingRay 4 Electric bass delivers the old school vibe you love with the flawless craftsmanship and incredible feel that sets Music Man basses apart. The StingRay 4 is a tricked-out Classic Collection StingRay bass that is just as breathtaking to look at as it is to play and hear.

Ever since the early '70s, StingRay basses have been sought after by many of the world's most demanding bass players, and for good reason! By combining top-notch hardware, a chunky yet comfortable neck, a pair of massive-sounding humbuckers, and killer electronics, the StingRay 5 HH delivers everything a serious bass player could ask for. Pick up a Music Man StingRay 5 HH from Sweetwater, and find out what all the hype is about.

    •Killer electronics for super-punchy bass sound

    •Extra-beefy yet totally playable neck feels amazing

    Killer electronics for super-punchy bass sound
    From the very first time you plug in your Music Man StingRay 5 HH, you'll appreciate both the phenomenal low-end punch and the massive tonal versatility its pair of soapbar-style humbucking pickup delivers. Granted, the extra-stout pole pieces and wide windings provided by this alnico pickup contribute a solid basis for your tone, but its the StingRay 5 HH's active preamp and 3-band EQ really that let you sculpt your sound. As a result, everyone from shoegazer-era rockers to funk masters have enjoyed the extreme punch this amazing instrument has to offer.

    Extra-beefy yet totally playable neck feels amazing
    There's simply no substitute for a great neck. Music Man put a ton of work into developing a neck that would provide you with the perfect balance of comfort, speed, and stability. The StingRay 5 HH's 1-3/4" nut gives you plenty of room to play and the 11" radius fingerboard gives you excellent string-to-string separation. Finished with gunstock oil and a hand-rubbed special wax blend, the back of the StingRay 5 HH's neck feels amazing and lets you hand glide along effortlessly. And with its 6-bolt attachment, this bolt-on neck delivers stability that easily surpasses most set necks.

    Loaded with StingRay style, sound, and innovation
    The StingRay 5 H, like the rest of Music Man's StingRay bass lineup, claims roots that run back to 1971, when Music Man was founded. Armed with a fat and punchy humbucker, active electronics, and a delightfully chunky neck it's no wonder the StingRay became a standard for such bass players as Guy Pratt, Cliff Williams, and Flea.
