"In 1987 Ernie Ball Music Man created the legendary StingRay 5 bass, setting the standard for the modern 5-string bass. The 35th Anniversary edition honors the timeless Ernie Ball Music Man design that has been used by some of the world’s most iconic bassists. The ash body features a spalted maple top with thin maple veneer and comes standard with a Spalted Sunburst finish. The roasted figured maple neck features an ebony fretboard, copper pearlescent block inlays and is finished in a high gloss for superb comfort and playability. High-output neodymium StingRay 5 pickups provide powerful low-end with a distinctive mid-range punch while the lightweight hardware delivers solid stability. Limited to 225 single-humbucker and 25 dual-humbucker models, every Anniversary StingRay 5 includes a certificate of authenticity."
