Overview

The Stingray 5 BFR 5-String Bass features a fully painted neck and headstock in the same custom finish as the body. The pickups are packed with powerful neodymium magnets for increased output and a new 18-volt preamp for extra clean headroom without clipping.

Solid roadworthy construction, elegant pickguard, 4+1 tuning key configuration, and the ever popular Music Man humbucking pickup, all of which combined produce a look, feel and sound that is remarkably unmistakable. Limited to 87 worldwide, this special BFR StingRay ships in a nice hardshell case.

Ball Family Reserve is a celebration of their heritage in instrument craftsmanship, which features some of the finest figured tone woods and finishes available. These rare pieces are offered in limited production runs and allow Music Man to present instruments to the public that were previously reserved for family and loyal artists.

Family matters
The Ball family is the last of a dying breed, a family business making premium guitars and basses on the California central coast since 1984. Sterling Ball, alongside his sons Brian and Scott, combine the laser precision of robotics and old-world hand craftsmanship to develop innovative instrument designs that push the boundaries of performance and playability.
