I have recently begun to prefer MusicMan Sterling basses to the Jazz basses I have played for the better part of 2 decades, and I am seriously considering the sale of my beloved Custom Shop Jazz bass in order to aquire a "classic series" Sterling. I would truly appreciate any information regarding these new basses. It would be amazing to hear from players familiar with regular USA Sterling basses (mine is a 2006) that have been able to compare and contrast along side a new "Classic Series". Cheers!!
