After much deliberation I have (almost) decided to go the route of a EB/MM Stingray, but it the Sterling has some features that appeal to me too, I am wondering if anyone has performed (or heard of) these mods being done. I like the ability to select the pickup config with the Sterling, can a Stingray be modded for this with the addition of a toggle switch? I will likely get the model with the piezo, as it offers the greatest flexibility (for a couple hundred more, already at that price, why not). I have yet to get the chance to A/B the 2 side by side, but am working on it, but by most accounts the 2 band EQ is the way to go for me, but it doesn't seem to be an option with the piezo. So therefore, can anyone accurately confirm or deny whether or not the preamps are essentially the same between the 2 models, with the exception of the additional mid control? If not, how easy is it to modify the 3 band circuit to sound/act like the 2 band? One option that has crossed my mind is to replace the mid pot with the pickup switch if I can make that mod, so no holes need to be drilled. It would convert it from a 3 band with piezo to a 2 band with piezo and pickup toggle. Oh, and before anyone interjects with "You could get that with a Bongo, they are more flexible" Thanks, but no. I wouldn't be caught dead playing one of those hideous monsters. The look and feel of the Stingray is what I want, I have played all the options to be assured of that, its just some of the feature set that doesn't add up to perfection for me. Any help would be appreciated, but please, Stingray/Sterling only.
