    I am stuck between two worlds. These 2 amazing basses, but i cannot choose!

    A limited edition Musicman Sterling with a black to silver finish.


    A SR500 Ibanez bass....brown mahogany.......(faint)

    Please list the pros and cons of each so my life will be easier

    Not to be awkward, but I would go for the Ibby...

    I have both. It's funny, there is a similarity in tone, but playability is night and day. Not that one is superior to the other, just different.

    If you like them equally, there's no contest since the Ibby is half the price. But MM is a better, more versatile bass.
  6. are you talking about the silverburst Sterling by Musicman Ray34?

    that makes a big difference at least to me
    from apples to oranges to apples to apples
    if you are talking about the SBMM then you cant go wrong either way

    Yeah, he must mean the Sterling by Musicman, as that color is out now.

    My vote is for Ibanez. I love the sound of the MM basses, but Ibanez necks are by far my favorite.

    Ibanez is a bass you upgrade from.
    Music Man is a bass you upgrade to.

    Just sayin'.

    As has been said over and over, get the one you like best.

    I have an Ibanez BTB Prestige and I love the way it plays, feels, and sounds. The only thing I'd trade it for at the moment is a Lakland, as I lust after that B string.

    Love the MM sound too. I also have a G&L L-2500, which is a 180 degree opposite from my Ibby.
