    This bass is identical to my main gigging bass. There's just *something* about those early Sterlings. Like the soup--Mmm Mmm, Good!
  6. Interested in trades??
  7. This is a fine, fine instrument. I would consider trades but only something really interesting, I'm in the "do I keep the Sterling or pay for a clutch" mode...

    I'm interested, can you give more detail about "aging on metal" . Got any other pictures? Come with Hard case?

    Thanks, Jamie

  9. Comes with EBMM hard plastic case.
    There is a little discoloration on the pole pieces and a little on the bridge, I will get some better pix tomorrow.

    Seriously--let me offer a few reasons why these early Sterlings are so cool:

    1. Battery hatch versus battery box--less prone to solder joint breakage.

    2. Neck plate is countersunk--nicely set into the body for a smooth feel.

    3. Bridge mutes are in place if you want to get thumpy.

    4. The neck contour on MY early Sterling is slightly sleeker than my two late model Sterlings, and IMHO, more comfortable--if that's possible.

    If you're the least bit tempted to take the plunge on a Sterling you can't do better than an early one. This bass, with a high quality silver and black paisely pickguard from WD, is my go-to solution for 90% of gigs.

    I had an early fretless sterling that looked like this (same color, mutes were missing), and I wound up swapping necks on it (I had a fretted sterling too). There was something about it but I liked it more than my 100% sterling that I had switched necks with.
  17. Would prefer sale but might consider trades. 5-string Stingrays esp.
  18. price drop in the future?

  19. will consider offers... ;)
