    So I got a job (finally...!) and due to the extra cash I have been looking at basses again.
    I, once again, have come grown on the idea of having a music man stingray.
    But here is the thing, have 2 options:

    1: save up the $2000+ for a music-man stingray 5 in a cherry burst finish.


    2: save $700 for a sterling stingray35 in black. Then later find some one good at painting refinish it to to the cherry burst. And prob have a custom pickguard made.

    I guess I'm asking which option would be cheaper and which may be better in the end (I.e. Quality etc..).

    I do like the more oval p guard and metal electronics cover of the music-man more so than the large guard of the sterling. Don't know if i could do anything about that...
