MM basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by chalie, Mar 29, 2005.

  1. I was offered 2@ MM basses today at the same price.
    1992 StingRay 4 and 2000 Sterling, both has maple fret board and amber body.
    I have no experience with freted MM and wonder which one I should pick.
    Please advice a little. Thanks

    Sterling. If they are the same price get the sterling with its electronics. Also body is smaller so more comfortable. Just play them both and see which one you like.
  3. I tried today for the first time on the Sterling but the body is quite lmaller. Sounding is more versatile, off course.

    Every SR4 that I have played had a two band EQ. I think the 3 band is an option but I have only seen them on the 5 strings.

    I like the Sterling better. Neck feels like a Jazz bass, the body is a little smaller and lighter, and you get a 3 band EQ with a 3 way coil selector for the P/U.

    Stingray sounds like tin compared to the Sterling. Especially when played with a pick. Should be no contest.
