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 '70s. Active electronics, low noise humbucking pickups, rock-solid hardware and a simple, uncluttered look that is instantly recognizable and respected.

Classic Attractive Body Lines
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.

All This, and Active Electronics
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.

Fully Adjustable, Heavy Duty Bridge
Complete control over intonation and individual string height ensures the most comfortable playing experience whether your practicing at home or rocking out on stage.

One of the best bass tones I have heard. Better than 1-1.5k bass guitars I have played



Good bass


A good bass for low price.




Very Handsome Bass


I have just recently "discovered" the Sterling by Music Man bass. I am very impressed by the overall quality of this instrument. From fit and finish to the "deep" bass sound that I prefer, this bass is tops. Also, Sam Ash, as always, provided quick and courteous service! Discover one of these bass guitars for yourself.




Sweet bottom tones!


No need to modify the bass. It sounds really good, comfortable playing, and I enjoy it very much!
