Music Man Stingray 5 Bass HH BFR Roasted Neck Bass Guitar
For sale is Music Man Stingray 5 in HH modification with two premium BFR (Ball Family Reserve) humbuckers – analogue of Custom Shop with wonderful Roasted Birdseye Maple neck and ebony fingerboard. The condition is ideal, almost new. It comes with the original case and all the documents. It sounds and looks more outstanding than its brothers do. It is a very rare and undoubtfully noteworthy Music Man of Ernie Ball company’s line — Ball Family Reserve. These instruments are issued rarely and that’s why it is difficult to find them. Due to this, these basses are so valuable for collectors as well as for ordinary musicians who like top-notch instruments with their own peculiar features… Exactly this beauty has magnificent neck that is present only in Ball Family Reserve instruments — Roasted Maple Neck (birdseye + ebony fretboard). It is really one of the most wonderful necks I’ve ever seen. Besides the beautiful texture of birdseye maple, this neck is covered with a special lacquer (I’ll remind that MM necks are just waxed and not covered with lacquer) and ebony fingerboard makes this bass premium, special and gives it a special tone. Besides the wonderful neck, the bass guitar has one more feature – special finish. At first sight, it seems that it’s black, but it’s metallic black actually and the sparkles are of golden and brown colors. It shines beautifully under the light and the bass looks expensive and magnificent. The sound is MM; tone and ergonomics – everything is Music Man, original, but in the mix the bass plays a little bit differently, and in my opinion, more interesting. The bass seemed to me thicker and more distinct simultaneously. I don’t know for sure why it is so, but I think it’s because of the special neck and because it’s a custom-built instrument. It is some kind of Custom Shop analogy of Fender. The bass sounds right and great in the mix. Besides, it has a universal electronics that includes 2 humbuckers with the possibility to switch different coils modes, 3-band EQ and 5-way switch that allows the bass to sound versatile: from distinct aggression to soft sound. This instrument will soothe the vanity of the most experienced bassists and, first of all, those who know the quality and stability of Music Man brand. This instrument will broaden the understanding of these instruments. Universal, modern, unique and beautiful bass! Don’t miss the chance to possess Custom Shop Music Man!
