Don't waste your money and time! Some years ago, a friend bought a "Sterling Ray 35" for $350. It was the worst bass I've ever played: 1. Crap electronics and hardware. 2. Misaligned and too chunky neck (like a baseball bat). 3. Poor fret job. 4. Never got a comfortable string action without fret buzz. Even Fender and Squier basses made in China are crap, you can't expect something good from chinese replicas.
