    Thinking about selling my other basses and keeping my Sterling 4H as my only bass for the time being. I'm not really playing enough to keep multiples around and would rather use the cash for other things.

    Do you think a Sterling could do work as a do-it-all workhorse?

    Yes, I think almost anything in the Music Man line-up could potentially serve as a "Swiss Army Knife"-type bass. However, if there's even a remote chance of you getting a paid gig at any point in the foreseeable future, I'd keep a second bass as a spare.

    Good choice for an only bass IMHO. A single pickup bass really can't get more versatile. You can coax a lot of different sounds out of it with right hand position alone.

    A Sterling 4H was my main bass for several years, so I'd say yes.

    Yes. Lots of great tones in a single H Sterling.
