Hi Gang... new to the forum... hope this post is ok... let me know if I mucked it up...thanks! Looking online I see that the Sterling Ray4 SUBs are being replaced by the Sterling Ray4. The differences I see is no "SUB" on the headstock label, 21 frets instead of 22 and a 9.5 inch radius instead of 12 inch on the sub. Some finish color changes to... I also see at my online dealer that the prices are about 10% lower than the SUBs were priced at. I have a sub now, vintage cream with the rosewood neck but was considering another with a maple neck... maybe the mint green or sunburst. My dilemma is do I buy one of the SUB models, which I know are very good (at least the one I have is) or is there an advantage to buying the new model other than the reduced price? I know my SUB was made in China and the quality is top notch... not sure about the build quality of new models? I have read somewhere that some of the Sterling line is made in Korea, which I hear is of excellent quality. I have to wonder if the pickups might be improved in the new line although nothing wrong with the one I have... it sounds great. I guess the other factor is weight. For some reason I dont see many sites, including sterlings own site, listing weights? Any comments would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance for chiming in.
