Price or Trade Value : £1100

For sale is my amazing Musicman Stingray 5HH in honeyburst with rosewood fretboard.
Its a very classy looking ray with the now discontinued Honeyburst finish . It also features a tort guard on a ash body and a lovely rosewood board on a very comfy oiled maple neck.currently strung with DR high Beams.

It weighs 4.9kg / 10.8lbs,(this was the weight given by the previous owner,but it does not feel really heavy with a decent strap) with a string spacing of 17.5mm, It has a low action and being the HH model it's ridiculously versatile. There is a small chip in the rear by the strap pin, other than that it's in really really good condition.

This StingRay 5 HH was completed on March 28th 2006
Its been very well looked after as the condition is superb for an 11 year old bass.

To be clear this double humbucker version is slightly different to the modern versions as the pickups are ceramic and wired in series (louder with more bass and low mids)as per the Sterling 5HH, in practice this gives the bass a much much warmer and punchy tone (very P bass like on the front pickup) while still exhibiting the stingray bounce. The mixture of the different pickups gives a great array of tones, and with both pickups on its like a really beefy jazz but with Musicman characteristics. Ive used this for various theatre gigs as well as functions and original material and ive found the tone more useful than other rays ive had in the past.

https://www.music-ma...sses/sterling-5

It also had a great demo of the sterling 5hh which has the same pickups as this by Ed Friedland.

It does come with the OHSC. I will be wanting a firm 1025 delivered with insurance,which is cheaper than similar HH or H ray 5's that have sold on here recently(I will do 1000 if you'd like to collect from sunny Morecambe) I do not wish to post this overseas.

cheers 😀

I can 100% vouch for how lovely this bass is and what a great seller Lee is. Someone is going to be very very happy with this SR5.

Another endorsement for this bass and Lee from me! I was around there this morning and the stingray played brilliantly. Never been one for musicman basses or 5 strings but I loved this bass immediately after picking it up. Great instrument. Good luck with the sale

Cut through the mix with the aggressive, punchy and warm sound (lots of nice mids)of a sterling,with the more elegant look of a stingray. Have your cake and eat it 😀

If this is around in April, I could be interested! I'm just having some moving around of the gear and I think buying two basses back to back will end badly!

Thanks loads you're absolutely right it's a great bass and only selling as I have Overwater gas! I may just keep it as I'd not get a better bass for the money. Musicman basses are do well made and sound fantastic (they are very expensive new too)😁

I hear you! Weight does seem heavy on paper, however ive never found it heavy as I use a comfort strap which is good at holding the weight. I got the weight from the previous owner,so it might be worth me rechecking! 10lbs plus is usually typical of a stingray 5 though, the price you pay for the huge sound :)
And yeah I know the overseas thing will limit my market, but I worry enough about delivery to the uk

Great bass at a great price this. Surprisingly cheap for a HH. I have a H and a HS, so this is the only config I don't have lol.
Lovely colour too the honeyburst, very surprised it is still here, good luck with with sale, it's been up for a while!!

Posted 16 August 2017 - 03:16 PM

Not a lack of interest, Lee - there's a line in my budget and this beauty is pretty definitely on the other side!
It will find a home, I am sure.
I do have...
1) Hohner "Paddle" Fretless - almost unplayable due to Hohner filling the fret-slots with shrinking plastic. I love that bass so very much, one day I will pay more than it is worth to get the fretboard fixed...
2) Fender MIJ J-Fretless. Currently in bits, to clean previous owners tar off it...
3) Cheri accoustic. Brutally high action, but good for a bit of Brian Ritchie fun...

4) Ibanez SDGR800 from the 1990s - Affirma PUs, bendy neck. Was my first bass so I should keep it, but we never made friends so it is out on long term loan.
Notices something? I don't have a day-to-day gig-ready instrument :-P ... Looking for anything that has a good P-Sound plus one other, and a string spacing narrower than a Fender but can be wider than the Hohner ;-)

Posted 19 August 2017 - 08:24 AM

Thanks for the comments guys :)
I do believe this is a very good price for a full blown USA ray, in pretty much as new condition. A lot of other ray 5's have gone for more money recently. I have received a lot of interest in the form of low ball offer from abroad,some of which have been ridiculous!

i would consider part trades for a 5 string with cash my way. I may even consider a trade for a ray 5H

I think you are there or there abouts price wise mate. Unless you are desperate for a sale, the right buyer will be out there.

I don't have a HH, or a rosewood board.... what am i thinking? Stop tempting me you bad man!!!

Seriously thinking of just keeping this! other ray 5's selling steadily and this sitting here for ages :(
I'm not desperate to sell though,so won't take daft offers.

Still may consider trades :)

If this is the bass I played when I purchased the cab from Lee (I think it is) then I can testify to its playability, tone and build. It's a great instrument. I had to very much show some restraint when Lee tried to flog it to me! I don't know what's better, Lee's playing, his basses or his personality, they're all great. Deal with confidence with Lee. Can't believe this hasn't gone yet!

Aww thanks for the kind words Dave, I appreciate it :)

don't know whether it's the weight or series wiring that's put people off! But this ray isn't heavy and has the typical Musicman tone,just with a lot more balls!! It's priced less than every other ray 5 that's sold on here,so I won't be taking offers!

I did withdraw it for a while as i thought about keeping it,but my Jazz and P are getting all the gigs (the few I'm doing) right now :)
