    Hear me, oh Bass Gods:
    I just ordered my new Bongo fiver (pearl white, white pearloid pickguard, piezo), but it will take a month or two to get made. In the mean-time, I have sent one of my Sterlings out to be strung and set-up for BEAD tuning. I sent DR .125s for the job. Anyone else done this with a Sterling (other basses are O.k. too)? Is a Sterling too short to keep the B from flopping?

    Works even better IMO. The growl with those pickups and the low tunings is phenominal :)
