    Yo, TBers.

    This here's a pretty one! 2008 Sterling 5 HS in the discontinued Medallion Gold finish with a finely straight-grained maple one-piece neck. Don't have a scale, but I'd say it can't be much above 9 lbs. Very comfortable, plays great, wide range of sounds from the HS configuration. Super nice bass!

    So, two things I'm looking for:

    NOTE: NEW PRICE! FS $1100 + Actual shipping in CONUS,
    FT 1989-1998 Ken Smith Burner 5 Deluxe or Special + cash.

    Will accept Paypal or USPS money order

    So, on to the eye candy. Oh, and here is some video of me running through the different pickup configurations.

    Only questionable bits are here and here. Two tiny scratches on lower bout:

    ...and these cracks on the case. Works fine otherwise.

    This is hilarious! I've been watching THIS video a ton lately trying to decide between a Sterling 5HS & 5HH.

    Just did again last night actually & here it is today... well well

    Near as the "step on digital scale with bass/step off/step back on method" can tell, it's 9.6 lbs. Seems about right to me.

    Well, well, indeed! That video was fun to make. Also, I should say that once I raised the neck pickup just a bit, the apparent volume difference vanished.
