So I'm thinking about purchasing a new bass. I currently own and Epiphone Thunderbird but am looking for something a bit more versatile. I have always wanted a MM bass but will never have the cash for the real thing. The reviews of the Sterling series makes me quite excited as its something I can afford. So my question is why would one purchase the Ray34 vs the Ray34ca or vice versa. I know the bodies are different and I know alot is personal preference but shouldn't the extra EQ of the Ray34 win out due to more choice in tone? Or is there something I'm missing here outside of just personal preference.
