Sorry this will be a little long winded, as I have some backstory... I had been GASsing for a Sterling 5 HH for a while, but was having trouble with that price tag. It was one of the few 5 stings that felt right in my hand. I didnt loose the b-string and it sounded great. Fast forward a bit. A few months ago I was in the local GC for something, and I noticed they had a Stingray 5 HS on the wall marked about $1,000 less than it should have been. It was new, and played great, if not as well as the Sterling. I asked the guy on the floor, and the sales manager if the price was correct, they confirmed so I thought it was too good a deal to pass up. Turns out someone had miss marked the price, and I walked out of there with it below their cost. Im really happy with this bass and have no plans to ditch it any time soon. On to the real question: My bass has the HS pick up configuration, but I'm really only digging two of the selections. I like the humbucker all the way on (switch all the way back), and the neck coil on with one of the humbucker pick ups (second from the front on the top on the selector). What kinds of sounds am I missing with the HS versus the HH pickups? Am I missing something with my HS with the other settings? Is there something the HH would offer that I cant get with the HS? Thanks for your advice.
