Manufacturer's Description from Music Man

After three decades had passed, the time came to make a version of the StingRay5 that not only celebrates, but advances on the ideas that the original version brought to the table. According to company CEO Sterling Ball:

“We don’t do re-issues. What we like to do is we like to start and celebrate the beginning, 1987, some things along the way like the compensated nut, the roasted [maple] neck, and then we have something that we’re doing now, a new discovery.”

We’ve re-voiced the pre-amp. What that really means is, taking some of the treble down, changing the mid-point, and boosting the bass a little bit. We’ve voiced this bass for what people want right now.”

During the design of the 30th Anniversary model, we also experimented with the differences between pickup magnets. Alnico, ceramic, and neodymium magnets were used in various stages of design. After extensive testing we discovered that ceramic magnets gave the 30th Anniversary model a punchy and balanced tone that complements the revoiced preamp.

In addition to all the specially revamped electronics, the 30th Anniversary StingRay5 is finished with a beautiful limited edition trans buttermilk finish, red tortoiseshell pickguard, roasted maple neck, and a bound fretboard with white position markers
