I know they are totally different basses, I've had 3 Jazzes in the past (Valenti, Sadowsky, and a Fender RW), and I've also had a Musicman SUB a long time ago, when I didn't know how to play (not that I know now). I feel that the Stingray or Sterling will be a change from the Jazzes that I've never totally been satisfied with... I don't have the money for both, and likely won't have quite a while, therefore I need bass that I will love. If you had to choose between either, which one would you choose? Do you think one would more likely get rid of the Stingray or the Marcus Miller first? Is the difference in build quality big? Thank you.
