    For Sale EBMM Sterling 5 HS bought new in May this year. Bass is in perfect condition and practically new.

    Unfortunately moving to a smaller apartment (joys of nyc living) so need to consolidate some gear.

    This bass has the best neck out of my modest collection and I would love to keep it - but my other 5er is a warmoth custom with way too much money invested to sell without taking a crushing loss (been there).

    Bass is for sale only, no trades thanks.

    $1275 SOLD shipped CONUS, paypal.

    EBMM can explain the specifics best here:-
    http://www.music-man.com/instruments/basses/sterling-5.html

    But this particular bass

    - 5 HS model (Humbucker/Single - loads of tonal options with 5 way switch)
    - 9.3lbs which is an excellent weight for 5 string MM
    - Pearl Blue with Maple Fretboard
    - 3 band preamp (mid, treble, bass)
    - Neck is super fast with nice grain throughout, really is a joy to play
    - Comes with black and white pickguard
    - OHSC which has new bass smell

    This bass is super versatile can get really aggressive but also tame it back when required. Balance is perfect. Will be missed.

    Maybe you prefer the white pickguard look.

    Bass actually looks really cool with no pickguard. If I end up having to keep it will be ordering a clear one.
