Ernie Ball Music Man BFR StingRay Special 5 H – Kinetic Blue/#52 of 85

Serial Number: F89259

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.

Limited to only 85 pieces worldwide, this BFR StingRay Special 5 string will turn heads! The entire bass including the neck and headstock are finished in a color shifting Kinetic Blue. The 18 volt preamp is rear mounted to allow for the clean, no pickguard, aesthetic. Each bass comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity and hardshell case.
