    After shopping for a long long time I finally found a SUB sterling that had to be mine. Bought from fellow TBer @MikeSorr whom I'd like to say was awesome to deal with, packaging with super professional, all in all can't give enough pisitpos feedback. But I digress. Very happy to add to my EBMM US family. Plays beyond smooth. Tone for days. IMG_20181116_053726243_LL. IMG_20181116_053800470_LL. IMG_20181116_053833902_LL. IMG_20181116_053825639_BURST000_COVER.

    Nice! Congrats. I actually prefer the replacement pickguard on that particular finish over the OEM one.

    The OEM are those diamond plate guards right? I've never been a fan. Love the black on this one

    Yes. It's sort of an "industrial" look.

    I did see one on a burgandy body once that I thought was cool looking. I think my biggest beef is I don't like black body basses. And that's the most common sight with that guard

    My 2004 SUB Sterling came with a one-ply black pickguard, not the diamond plate. I'm the original owner.

    Thanks for pointing that out – I didn't realize that the USA SUBs had been produced with multiple pickguard designs.

    I definitely prefer the black guard.

    Mine's a black body with the black guard. Guess you won't be trying to buy it off me. :)

    Haha it's always possible. I also don't care for sunburst BUT I have 3 black basses and a burst bass
