Music Man Stingray Bass 5 HH Limited Edition Rosewood Neck Bass Guitar
For sale is an absolutely new and limited Music Man Stingray 5 with All Rosewood Neck.
Bass guitar condition: The bass is in the perfect new condition. Everything works and functions well. It is a new store exemplar.
Sound: it’s not an ordinary Music Man Stingray 5, it is more complex modification with 2 pickups: 2 humbuckers that have the possibility to switch coils in different modes. Due to these electronics possibilities, the bass guitar sounds variously in different modes. If to take only the variant of coils switching, there are 5 of them:
- H. Bridge humbucker, coils work in parallel mode. Classic sound of stingray in parallel mode.
- S S 1. Here the inner humbucker coils are working. It sounds a little bit like jazz bass.
- HH. All 4 coils in serial mode. Mode HH is the original only for such modifications. It has a very delicious and modern sound, where all is balanced.
- S S 2 – two outer coils mode.
- H n – neck pickup. Warm and soft sound of Fender Precision.
If to add flexible electronics with 3-band equalizer, we get the universal contemporary instrument that will suit for different aims. Moreover, the bass guitar has the right resonance wood, which together with the well-matched electronics form the universal concert and studio rocket with balls. Rosewood neck adds more warmness and right compression and due to this makes it possible to get in mix better.
Tuning and convenience: Wonderful balance of the instrument, comfortable neck profile, and great possibilities at regulating strings height help to make the guitar compliant. Strings are in a good balance.
Packaging: The bass guitar is delivered with original hardshell case. There are new nickel strings; in addition, there’s a very stylish pickguard that imitates rosewood.
The general result and my subjective opinion: Music Man Stingray 5 HH is a universal and characteristic bass guitar. Besides, this is a limited version with all rosewood neck, more expensive and rare model. Such a specification is usually available only to Music Man of BFR line. Due to the presence of the 2nd pickup, the guitar has a wide range of tuning. The tone is recognizable in any mix. The neck gives the natural compression, which helps the bass to sound with confidence. There’s strength, attack and characteristic low mids thanks to which the instrument will always be heard in the mix. This is the bass that will never let you down!
