NBD(a week late) Sterling By Music Man Ray35

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by 5StringAssassin, Jun 1, 2017.

  1. I saw this Neptune Blue and I knew it was the one. I've only had to do some slight saddle adjustments and it plays and sounds like a dream! I've finally got that Music Man sound I've been wanting for so many years!

    I played one just like that. Since they tweaked the preamp, it is so close to a Stingray sonically, I honestly cannot tell the difference.

  6. Right!! I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw that.
  7. Thanks guys! She's awesome! I wound up lowering the saddles just a touch because the upper frets didn't feel the best. Everything else is golden. Highly recommended!

    Nice bass!

    All of our Sterling by Music Man guitars and basses include the gig bag. Congrats on the NBD!
  9. These basses really are amazing especially used. I'm currently trying to sell one.
