    DEAL PENDING For sale only is an EBMM Classic Sterling in gorgeous tobacco burst finish with flamed maple neck and fretboard. One of the prettiest and best-sounding basses I’ve owned. Included is an upgraded tort pickguard, which looks fantastic on this bass. (I no longer have the original black pg.) Also included are Dunlop Strap-Loks and the Music Man OHSC.

    This Classic Sterling, made in San Luis Obispo, CA, features 2-band EQ, string-through bridge with mutes and a slab body. The bass has a gloss neck and fretboard. The tinted, vintage-looking fretboard is stunning. Controls are volume, treble and bass. She weighs 8 pounds, 15 ounces on my digital scale, and is strung with DR Marcus Miller Fat Beams.

    The bass is in perfect condition except for one tiny (1/8 of an inch) ding at the top. I attempted four different photos before getting one in which lighting conditions could show the ding. This high-quality Classic Sterling has been lovingly cared for and kept in a smoke-free home.

    As you probably know, the EBMM Sterling features a smaller body size and neck than the StingRay. I’m one of those who vastly prefer the Sterling’s profile to the StingRay. Just a very comfortable and natural-feeling bass to me. I also love the 2-band EQ – better, IMO, than the 3-band that’s standard on regular Sterlings.

    I bought this bass last fall from its first owner. Original thread (with additional photos): http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f126/fso-ebmm-sterling-classic-815231/. I’m selling as part of a herd-trimming to fund other expenses.

    Price: $1,150, including shipping within the continental US. Payment via PayPal. Please, no trade offers. Thanks for looking. Let’s give this special bass a great new home.

    Photos of the minuscule ding (barely noticeable; have to hold in just the right light to notice it) and the OHSC...

    By the way, the price is lower than I paid 10 months ago, plus you get the upgrades. These basses go for $1,799 new.
