    hmm i dont think their a whole lot like stingrays other than appearence. They have a completely different neck than stingrays. If you like a jazz bass you'll like a sterling. Alot of people perfer their electronics becuase it gives you more options. I personally like the stingray, but thats because i hate jazz necks. Try both and see, but IMO they are completely different. But after all that said they are AMAZING basses. If you get one you will NOT be dissapointed.

    If you want the Stingray tone, you have to get a Stingray. The Sterling sounds kinda like it, but doesn't nail it IMHO.

    If you want a little lighter bass, with a thinner neck, and a little more tonal versatility, the Sterling is a great bass.
