    I will try my best here man. A Stingray's pup is in parallel mode only while the Sterling can be run in parallel as well as single coil mode and series mode using the 3 way selector switch....much like the Stingray 5. Also the body and headstock are somewhat downsized on the Sterling. I could be wrong here but I think that is the gist of the differences man. Hope this helps.

    the sterling is the evil twin of the stingray. one came from long ago while the other was genitically engineered only recently. while both are equally good instruments. using one of them in a cerain region of the united states will get you shot on site.

    ....ok, really just do a search. there have been numerous threads regarding this
