Ernie Ball Music Man BFR StingRay 5 HH – Giants Orange Quilt Top/#87 of 91

Serial Number: F85512
Weight: 10 lbs 5 oz

The Ball family is the last of a dying breed, a family business making premium guitars and basses on the California central coast since 1984. Sterling Ball, alongside his sons Brian and Scott, combine the laser precision of robotics and old-world hand craftsmanship to develop innovative instrument designs that push the boundaries of performance and playability.

This special edition Stingray 5 features a lightweight ash body with a highly figured quilted maple top. The smooth satin figured roasted maple neck with rosewood fingerboard is accented with pearlescent white block position markers and hand fitted white binding. Equipped with dual alnico hum-bucking pickups, 3-band EQ and 5-way switch, this bass delivers all of the familiar Stingray punch along with a variety of coil voicing options. Contrary to most other SR5 basses the traditional large pick guard has been removed, in this case, to showcase the exquisite quilted top. Other key features include all black hardware and Schaller tuners. Limited to 91 pieces worldwide.
