Overview

The StingRay Bass has been a staple of modern rock, funk, and R&B since the 1970s. This incomparable Ernie Ball Music Man BFR StingRay Special 5 H reflects the finest craftsmanship, tonewoods and electronics available across the Ernie Ball Music Man bass lineup. Its lightweight ash body and figured roasted maple neck are finished head to toe, front to back, in a gleaming high-gloss finish for one-of-a-kind looks and collectibility. But make no mistake: this BFR is a bona fide groove machine that’s built to be played. A single neodymium humbucker with 3-band EQ, fed by a robust 18V delivery system, dishes out a buffet of iconic StingRay punch and presence. Lightweight Music Man tuners and a vintage Music Man top-load bridge, bedecked in a flawless chrome finish, round out the impressive BFR StingRay Special 5 H Fretless bass.

Features

he BFR StingRay Special 5 H Fretless, like the rest of Ernie Ball Music Man’s StingRay bass lineup, claims roots that run back to the 1970s, when Ernie Ball 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.
