I bought a Musicman Sterling a week and a half ago from TB member Transverz. Ive been biting my nails since that moment, waiting for it to arrive. Id never played a Sterling before, only a Stingray. I knew the differences between the two, and figured id be better off with a Sterling. I was right. The bass arrived a few hours and until a few minutes ago ive been letting it warm up before tuning it up. I finally tuned it up, plugged it in, and played it. The bass is set up great. I believe he had it set up by a pro before he sent it. It has nice low action and the neck is straight. The neck is super comfy and it has a nice birdseye to it. The satin finish or w/e they call it is great. Soundwise, this bass is quite versatile. I like the switch in the position where it points towards the neck, i cant remember if this is in series or parallel. (someone tell me?). You can get a smooth tone or a growly tone that MM is famous for. I prefer a bassy, punchy mid heavy tone. This bass does that great. Someone who has a Sterling, help me describe it? Great bass, easiest to play out of every bass ive played. Here are some pics. Figgeh happy Whats up guys? lemme know watcha think!
