    I just got this amazing bass in a trade today. I cleaned it up, set it up with my favorite strings...and holy heck, this thing BUMPS. Intonation is dead on with my ST300; some of the best intonation across the neck that I've ever seen.

    I know I'm wrong quite often, but that looks like a Sterling to me.

    You both beat me to it. Was unsure if it could be some kind of HH Classic SR5 thing but then I remembered those only come as H, then saw the 5 bolt easy access neck joint, Sterling 5. Great bass indeed.

    D'addario Nylon Tapewound ETB92-5. They're the only strings I play. Not that I'm any good. ;)

    The official name for that color is SEXUAL CHOCOLATE. Damn that's nice!

  14. Nice! Trying out a Sterling is on my "to do" list - they're quite rare in my neck of the woods.

    Your neck of the woods (and all of Nova Scotia) is probably my favourite place in the world, you lucky man! (sorry for the off-topic)

    Not usually one to go for gold in the hardware category. This bass would make me reconsider. She's a real beaut' Clarke!

    I'm pretty sure Sequoia Gold is what they actually call it, but I think what @johnson79 called it is more accurate. ;)
