I Know This Has Probably Been Asked 1000 Times Already

  1. But Stringray or Sterling. Like whats kinda sounds can you get from a streling. Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't like real stringrays liek high and twangy? So would the sterling be low and bassy. I dont know, any help would be cool. Thanks to anyone thats replys positively

    This HAS in fact been asked 1000 times. The pickup is mostly the same and I'm 99% sure the preamp is the same too. The only difference with the electronics is the 3 way switch for coil switching. The switch allows for both coils in series, both in parallel, and just the single coil.

    The other difference is the body and neck, it's smaller like a jazz bass.

    different neck is the biggy. a stingray is like a pbass, a sterling is like a jazz neck. They sound pretty similar, a stingray CAN be high and twangy but it can also be the most bassy bass ever made.
