    Recently picked this up as I was G.A.S.ing for a Sterling USA bass. I have to say, I was pretty impressed. The quality of Music Man never ceases to amaze me, which is why I can't help myself when I see one for sale.

    Maybe I'm crazy, but I think I actually like the tone and sound of the Sterling BETTER than a Stingray. The 1.5" jazz width neck feels amazing and the smaller, lighter body is really nice. It's a much "easier" bass to play. There's a wide range of tones from the HH pickups. However, in the end, I am still stuck to my Fenders. It's either a curse or a blessing, I'm not sure! Either way, I decided the basses I currently have are enough for me, so I'll be putting this one on the block.

    Overall, the bass is in really great shape. Black finish and rosewood is really nice looking. No dings to speak of, but one small scratch which I've pictured. The pickup switch works fine, but its a little "loose". This is to say it doesn't lock in tight at each position. It still works, but again, you don't get that hard stick. I'm sure it's an easy fix, but it never caused me any problems so I didn't pay it much attention.

    Nice and light at 8lbs 9oz. OHSC with some candy included.

    Reasonable offers certainly considered.

    Trade Interests:
    Under 9lbs Fender American P or PJ. Possible MIM plus $$$. Let's see what you've got!
