    Sterling by Music Man is a Stingray. Newer ones even say Stingray on the headstock. They are certainly not as nice as American Stingrays, but they have that Stingray sound for sure!:bassist:

    When I saw Marcus Miller in 2015, he used a Sterling for his fretless number.

  6. Yes. I wasn't disputing any of this, just making the point that she gets good sounds out of lower-end instruments.

  7. Incidentally, I once had a Surf Green Ray 34, and it was a very solid instrument.

    Bugger. All that NAMM noise is so annoying.
