Well in the near future i am going to be faced with the decision of whether to buy an Ernie Ball Stingray or an Ernie ball Sterling. They both feature a humbucker pickup at the end of the bass. The Stingray is an average pickup and is 2EQ. The Sterling has a Phantom Coil and 3EQ. The phantom coil has three different modes. One is both coils in series mode, the other is just one coil, and the last is both coils in paralell mode. Which of the two do you think that i should purchase?
