    You definitely don't see these very much! This is a US Made, EBMM Sterling SUB. It's fretless, which is rare, but it's also in the multi-color prismatic CINNAMON color. It's reddish-brownish-greenish, depending on the angle. Yes, it's the textured finish, but it's different colors.

    These basses are fantastic, a lot of people like the SUB series in general, but the Sterling has the 3-band eq that seems to be mellower than the normal 3-band of the era. In my ears, it sounds more classic.
    The neck was stripped and finished in TruOil, which makes it so much nicer than the thin, black painted way it came.
    The pickup cover was replaced with a no-holes version. It's the same pickup... just no pole pieces to hit your fingers. Sounds exactly the same, but easier to dig into.

    My scale doesn't work, so I'll guess 9-9.5 lbs.
    It's in fantastic shape, only minor wear for a bass of its age, small scrape pictured in last shot. Neck is straight, plays like butter.
    Includes Musicman molded SKB Sterling case.

    Asking $500 shipped OBO (add $25 if west of the Mississippi)
    Paypal or MO.
    International may require shipping without case, but PM me and we'll talk.

    No trades, PM with questions.

    I have owned 14 subs, only one was fretless and it was a five. One sub sterling fretted but it did not say sterling on the peghead. This is one rare pup!

    GAS PAIN bumps to keep this one at the top. Awesome bass for sale from an awesome dude! SUBS kick butt in the Q department. If I had the funds, this would be coming Canuckside to join my SUB5. :bassist:

    I think this would be right in your wheelhouse, D!
    Wish I could find a SUB 5 Fretless... never knew they existed, but would definitely rock one.
