    Is Ernie Ball/Musicman ever going to update their website to reflect the addition of these basses to the product line? :confused: GAS-filled minds want to know...

    those are really hawt! I can't wait til I have enough money to "invest" in one of these. I'll probably wait until the 30th ann. one comes out. The pic I saw before was just too awesome for me not to get one.

    OK, here we go...
    I announced its homecoming about two weeks ago. I guess showing the pix makes it official. :D

  13. That is one beautiful bass.
     
  14. does anyone have a Stingray AND a Sterling?

    I've never seen them side by side before, i'd be interested in seeing how they compare sitting beside each other.

    The Sterling has a lighter, smaller body and a narrower neck. The new ones are narrower than even the Jazz bass IMO.

    I just got a Sterling in trade and I love it. Great - unique sound. Great neck profile.

    It has one humbucker. Do I read you guys right that EBMM is making these HH or SH too?

    Cool.

    yah, they are. They look and sound awesome with the extra single coil, haven't played an HH yet, but I hope to.

    I'm drawn between getting a Used NS DB, and a Sterling HS, I know they are completely differnet, but what do you guys think (I think I might go with the sterling because it's more at home with me)
