NBD: Ernie Ball Music Man Sterling
So I got my Sterling a few days ago and pulled it out yesterday to play. LOVE the feel of the neck and the tone is so punchy and fierce! It feels a lot more playable than my Cirrus, if that makes sense...? I have the single humbucker model with the 3-way switch and it's a dream for slapping and popping. Also, it's very comfortable both to carry and to play.
The cosmetic wear was not as bad in person as the way it was described in the ad. The biggest chip in the finish is on the back of the bass...you don't see it when you look at it head on. There's a little chip in the fretboard on the first fret just outside of where the G string hits, but it does not affect playability. There are a few dings in the body but I only see them when I'm looking for them. This was literally a pawn shop bass which I managed to snag on Ebay with its OHSC for $720 shipped. I was a little apprehensive to buy it because of its minor issues, but it looks like I got a winner!
Photos coming soon!
