5 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The Music Man StingRay 5 Bass possesses a select hardwood body and maple neck to deliver a warm thick tone with melodic highs and firm lows. Its maple fingerboard and gunstock oil and hand-rubbed special wax blend provides a smoother play. The StingRay Bass contains a Music Man humbucker with Alnico magnets, 3-way level pickup selector and a 3-band active preamp to give you control over the treble, bass and midrange to allow for alterations to the tonality to suit your playing style. With its black pickguard, graphite acrylic resin coated electronics shielding, chrome hardware and with a black high gloss finish the StingRay 5 from Music Man offers a stylish instrument with exceptional build quality and tonality.

Select Hardwood Body & Select Maple Neck

The Music Man StingRay 5 Bass Guitar is built from a select hardwood body and a maple neck to produce a strong, aggressive tone with exceptional sustain and deliver a powerful low end growl. The highs produced are melodic with a sharp sizzle, its mids are snappy and its lows are firm. When picked aggressively the StingRay 5 produces an energetic edged tone whilst still being able to have excellent clarity when picked more softly.

3-Band Active Preamp EQ

The 3-band active EQ allows for more control over the dynamics of the bass's tone with the three EQ control pots. With the standard volume control, the 3-band EQ is also configured with controls for treble, bass, and midrange to allow for tonal adjustments that will suit your playing style and to ensure that you have a fantastic tone before the sound even reaches your amplifier.

The StingRay

Music Man's StingRay was first created in 1976 by Joe Fender and Tom Walker with the help of Sterling Ball who was a beta tester for the StingRay. Although it was physically similar to a Fender precision bass, the StingRay was considered a highly innovative instrument and since then has been a favourite for several influential bassists such as Louis Johnson, Flea, Bernard Edwards and Guy Pratt.

About Music Man

Music Man (originally Tri-Sonix) was founded in 1971 by Forrest White and Tom Walker with the help of Leo Fender, who at the time was a silent partner due to a 10-year non-compete clause he was tied to. In 1974 when they officially became Music Man, the company produced its first product, an amplifier designed by Leo Fender and Tom Walker called the "Sixty Five" and a year later Leo Fender was named president of the company. It was in 1976 when Music Man started to produce guitars and basses in the form of the StingRay 1 Guitar and StingRay Bass and the company was later bought to Ernie Ball in 1984.
