    I'm finally going to get a 5 string after 10yrs of playing and narrowed it down to the Sterling Sub HH and the Ibanez 305. Just looking for some pros/cons and experience with from other owners of either.

    I've owned a couple Ibanez basses over the years and thought they were decent but, I don't have much experience with Sterling other than playing around with the 4 string single H a few years ago at GC. I liked it but it was the more expensive Ray34 not a Sub.

    Both sound different, different neck profile , and the biggest different is weight ! I can sure the Sub Ray5HH weight starting point 9.5lbs and above, but you can find Ibby SR 305 around 8.5lbs or less.
