Went into my local GC the other day & just for kicks played a Sterling Ray 4 for the 1st time. I really liked it. They also had a Schecter Stiletto Custom 4 (which is what I currently own) so I was able to A/B them and still really liked the Sterling. The only difference between the Stiletto in the store and mine is that I've modded mine to use 2 batteries and run at 18V instead of 9. The EMG web site says that's supposed to give better headroom or something like that. Anyway I'm thinking of taking my Stiletto in to A/B against the Sterling and if I still like it trying to trade for it. Does this seem foolish? Am I trading down in value? New Schecter Stiletto's are $550, used on ebay in the $350-$400 range (I got mine with HS case for less) and the Sterling is $289.
