Cost Of MM Sterling

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by AngryArgentine, Nov 29, 2001.


  1. If anyone could give me an estimate on about how much a MM Sterling bass with the following options would cost:
    -Lined Fretless (Hey, I'm the lead singer in my band, I have to look down sometimes)
    -Piezo Option
    -Vintage Sunburst
    -Shell Pickguard
    -Matching Headstock

    Any estimate would be good. Thanks.

    My guess off the top of my head is that a standard dealer's 30% discount list will bring the price to at least $1300. That piezo bridge option's pretty damn expensive. Don't ask me why.
     
  3. *cough* That's nothing compared to how a standard-no features sterling costs here in Canada (of course our money is worth less than toilet paper)
