I love my 1991 Stingray. It has great birdseye on the neck, a muted bridge w/ mutes perfectly intact and plays like a dream. However, I just don't like the teal thing much anymore... dunno why. So... I've been thinking a lot about selling her and picking up this beauty of a Sterling I've got my eye on. Think I'll like the Sterling as much as a Ray? I really like the idea of having a jazz neck but I'm not the biggest fan of the smaller body. Wish EB made a bass w/ Stingray body and Sterling neck!
