  1. It's my 18th Birthday today, and my joint present from my parents and grandparents...




    The photos just don't do it justice. It's stunning. GAS relieved for now :hyper:

    nice bass! I really love the pickguard on the blue body. Looks really nice. Have fun with it.
  3. Really good-looking bass! Congrats! There's just one thing that I find weird: why does it have three tuners on one side and one on the other?
  4. ummm...because it's a Music Man?

    3x1 is the Music Man way...

    couldn't have put it better myself.

    Martybass, that's a killer colour combination man. enjoy.:)
  6. That thing is gorgeous!! Congratulations! That's the kind of birthday present you never, EVER sell.
  7. You lucky bastard.
  8. Thanks guys! Yeah I don't think I'll be getting rid of this one in a hurry! The matching headstock just blows me away too.
    Also, I knew the body was downsized, but I never really appreciated how small it was until I put it next to my Ibanez. Weighs more than the Ibanez though. Probably because its not basswood :cool:

    Awesome!! A sterling is the only bass on my GAS list right now.

    What great Granpas you have man !!!

    I wish I had an ernie ball when I was 18,
    I had a Peavey Foundation that cost me 300 bucks and after saving a lot at 23 I finally got an Fender American Standard Jazz, so way to go you arein the right track AND AT 26 I got an ernie ball so you are 8 years ahead

    Just an ongoing cycle. :D

    Seriously though, glad you like your bass.

    Wonderful choice :) My Sterling basically cured me of all non ebmm GAS indefinitely. Although a few basses have crept back into my mind, but tahts just because i have a wenge fetish that cant be cured by EBMM.
