If one were to imagine a 5 string bass built in the 1970's, the picture would look much like the Classic Stingray 5. The Classic Stingray 5 pays tribute to the original Music Man bass designs from the mid to late 1970's with added modern refinements. String-through body bridge, mute kit, small profile nickel frets and a curvy 7.5" radius neck are key specifications that harken back to the early days of Music Man production. A modern six bolt neck attachment and an easy access truss rod adjustment wheel ensure solid construction with no hassle adjustments. The Classic's tone remains true to the original with an ash body, 2 band EQ and a standard Music Man Alnico pickup.
