    I can help a little. I have played the Ray 35 and own a Stingray 5 an I love it. However I just purchased a new Ibanez 1605 which has the same specs that the 4 string versions have and I'm blown away by the sound that the premium Ibanez bass have. I love it and thinking about saleing or trading my Stingray for another lol.

    Owasso OK
    What kind of music do you play?
    What sound are you going for?
    Do you need a neck pickup?
    Do you like thin necks?
    Do you want a more classic look or a more modern look?

    I play In a alternative band and Im not a bass player... Im a guitarist that wants to just study bass. I like the look of the Ibanez and the tone but I also love the thick beefiness of the Sterling both are around the same price range for me. But I would like a good studio bass as well as a good gigging bass
