I think Ive narrowed it between those two, whats the better investment?
Totally different basses. And Im guessing you mean fretless, like your other thread states?
Listen to old Pino for the MM tones, and Jaco for the jazz tones.
I have both, an 2008 MIA Jazz and a 2010 EB Sterling. I think the Jazz is the one you choose if you just want one. It pretty much works for everything.
I think the Sterling is more unique tonewise, and is a better made instrument, IMO of course, but the tone doesnt always work for everything.
They both hold their value well assuming both are MIA.
Well, I was thinking fretless, but upon more research I'm thinking I might just go fretted, keep in mind, Im still a very amateur player, and my knowledge of equipment is no where near as in depth as you seasoned veterans lol
I would Also try the new Sting ray classic it has tone tone tone ash body and sustain to boot i just took two weeks to try them out and ended up with 2010 MusicMan Stingray classic its a keeper!
I owned both at one time and the Jazz was more 'versatile', but the sterling is just a better made instrument...
Its a tough call, both are great, but as far as feel in my hands, Id say sterling.. FYI, I own a Jazz right now, and my next bass will be again a Sterling.. Then Im done!
Fretless Sterling w/piezo FTW.
Lemme pull up some of my sterling porn for you.
I agree, but in reverse. The J is more sound specific whereas a MM is more versatile.
i've owned both but ultimately sold the jazz and have another sterling on the way.
the jazz sounded alittle generic and "specific" to me too, just a personal opinion!
And the white edge on the fingerboard is from round wounds. So play soft or be careful with them.
Neither is more versitile than the other. Both have very recognizable tones. You could use any bass for any music you want to play. It's all personal preference.
