Having started a Jazz vs. Precision poll a few months ago, which had lots of success, I decided to do another one. I don't know if this has been done before, but it's a Sterling vs. Stingray poll, certainly basses that need no introduction. These are Ernie Ball Music Man's top basses, being perfect for any kind of music, mostly common in hard rock, post-grunge and funk. Personally, I prefer the Sterling. Even prefering the P neck to the Jazz neck, the Sterling neck is pretty smooth and solid, thin as the Jazz neck, if not more. The option of series mode is great, and the preamp is way better than the one on the Stingray. But the main motive of my choice is the use of ceramic magnets on the Sterling. They sound way better than the Stinray's Alnico pickups. Also, it looks way cooler! Having voted for the Jazz in the other poll, but then changed my mind, I'm confident that that isn't gonna happen this time. The Sterling is a killer bass.
