I never really liked the look of EBMM basses, and I'm not that into active electronics. But I stumbled upon this ad on Craigslist for a super clean Sterling 4 in a transparent teal color. It seems like a pretty great deal, but I really don't need to be spending $650 on a bass right now. That said, I love great deals. And I also love Andrew Bodnar's bass tone, and I think he used StingRays a lot of the time, like on "Watching the Detectives" by Elvis Costello and some Nick Lowe and Graham Parker stuff. So I mean I wouldn't hate owning this bass. And the color is cool. But really hoping one of you will beat me to it. Side note -- I know next to nothing about EBMMs, so if this like their budget brand or something (Sterling by Music Man, Music Man Sterling?) then my bad. Ernie Ball Music Man Sterling Limited Edition Bass Rare USA Made *UPDATE* It's not letting me reply to anything (new here, not too sure why). But thanks for all the advice. It's a ~15 minute drive away from where I live, and I'm going to see if I can go take a look. Totally agree about the poor marketing. It's honestly hard to even do a search for a MusicMan Sterling without getting all results for Sterling by MusicMan. It's like if Gibson had called Epiphone "Les Paul by Gibson." I think G&L is the only company that really got it 100% right with the budget line. Large G&L logo with "Tribute Series" written in small lettering below it. Classy.
