    After some good discussion (again - thanks for the good advise here!), some "tire kicking" and deliberation, I pulled the trigger on an MusicMan Sterling.

    UPS guy showed up today; here's the beast. I'm loving it.

    Looks a bit like my RAY34CA (same color) but yours has the PU selector switch.

    Nice bass! :bassist:

    Mjmeche; i don't know how much it weighs. It for sure out-weighs my Warwick Streamer though..

    I dont have a scale that can accurately measure it. Sorry..
