The Ray5 bass is the cousin of the Music Man StingRay 5 bass. Classic, iconic instruments that defined a generation of bassists since the late 70's. Active electronics, low noise hum bucking pickups, rock solid hardware and a simple, uncluttered look that is instantly recognizable and respected.

Familiar curves, contours, and fantastic balance make the Ray5 one with the player. Several attractive finishes let you choose just how you want to stand out on stage. Featuring a 9v powered Active Preamp and individual Volume Hi and Low Cut/Boost controls, Ray5 is a superior choice and incredible value for players of any experience level. Complete control over intonation and individual string height ensures the most comfortable playing experience whether your practicing at home or rocking out on stage.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreEdmonton Highlands, Alberta
I owned this bass for roughly half a year (give or take) and the humbucker definitely gave the bass that punch that you'd expect from a stingray and gave a really nice woody tone if you cranked the low end. The downsides were that it was heavy like a peavey t-40 and the huge baseball bat neck and 22 fret combination made the instrument feel huge to navigate as well didn't really give proper tension on the low b string. The bass sounded incredible and looked just as good, but it left a hole if versatility is what you are looking for.
