NBD for me! The most beautiful EBMM I've ever seen. Sterling 5 HH PDN !!
Wow, its perfect in every way & pictures are totally not even close to how good it really looks in person. The Sterling HH is the best bass I've owned & I've been through a ton! Its the best for me because its the most diverse tonally that can be change very quickly using just the 3 band EQ & the pickup switch. I love my Bongo but its harder to dial in exactly what I want nearly as quickly as with this Sterling HH. The trick is the Series wiring for aggression, single coils but parallel center position for very warm tones. I've tried a ton of boutique stuff & while they are awesome & may even sound better than the Sterling in some instances, they are not as diverse tonally with such ease to change up the tone for my cover band needs. :bassist:
Sterling HH = VERY underrated basses around here IMO.
Ernie ball NAILED these limited edition honeyburst roasted neck basses with pau ferro boards & mahogany bodies
Gratuitous family shot with poor winter lighting!
Wow! Nice Balls. Looks like you've got a great trio there! Congrats!
Eh, shoulda stuck with the reflex!
That BEM is bee-yoo-tee-ful!
Very nice bass.
Fortunately they didn't blame the look with gold parts.
1. is the bridge PU in the "sweet spot" as on Stingrays?
2. is the neck PU in the way if you slap?
(I always wonder when it comes to double humbucker basses...)
Thx for your answers,
2. Hell yes it is. Ed Friedland can still slap these really well but your average Joe like me... this aint a go to slapper bass
Amp'd: I really liked the Reflex & it was more tones than this BUT I can access these & control them MUCH easier & MUCH quicker. If you were a set it & forget it guy... the Reflex has the most tones available so you wouldn't go wanting
Lowact: Damn right
Bassist4dalord: Cant wait till Sunday to rock em at church :)
Something's moving in me trousers.
It's beautiful! The tort PG looks sweet on those honeybust PDNs... Play it in good health!
I still hate you... :p
Nice...almost looks like mine but sweeter. In fact, your whole stable of ladies look nice. You should start a bunny ranch and let us MM fans have a night of pleasure with them. :D
Congrats, that is a gorgeous bass!
This is by far the best bass I've ever played man, I just can't believe it right now, its literally the perfect bass, insane. The tone is so sweet. Just a bit more in the low end vs my normal Sterling HH rosewood but VERY close. The upper end is definitely a bit more sweeter with a tad less sparkle, not as harsh. If I roll up the bridge pickup & treble I can still get that Sterling aggression that cuts through the mix & sounds great... think Jets Are You Going to Be My Girl & Skynards Gimmie 3 Steps. Middle pickup & I have pure reggae warmth especially cutting the mids & boosting lows a bit... think Black Keys Lonely Boy all bass.
Keeper for life no doubt, never had a bass hit me this hard so fast.
That's VERY sweet Sir Tuna. :cool:
I've always been interested in these.
Could you please tell a lazy fella such as I what the controls are?
Switch does...? etc..
Wondering if u can do the one pup in single coil, one hb etc ?
it is quite sweet. and it has stainless frets. lucky you, the sterling 5 HH is the best bass musicman makes today. I still regret selling mine.
Sterling HH controls
Heres the controls PDF BELOW pics ! All on their site
Single coils are the 2 & 4 & really cop a J bass perty good
I get my warm P bass by middle position & rolling off mids
The previous owner had better pics than me
I wasn't getting natural lighting in Boston in the dead of winter ha ha
That is just sooo sweet!! There is nothing about that bass I don't love...!
Tuna, you're killing me! :)
Really, Really nice....I gotta say, that's much nicer looking than the Jazz deluxes. Congrats.
