A smaller, comfortable cousin of the StingRay.
The 5-string MusicMan Sterling is an electruc bass with a shape similar to the StingRay bass. The Sterling bass is shorter and narrower, while the neck remains basically the same. The MusicMan Sterling also features hot-rodded electronics: active 3-band preamp, a MusicMan humbucker pickup with hum canceling phantom coil, and unique 3-way switching (both coils in series mode, single coil, and both coils in parallel mode). Schaller BM tapered-post tuners. Volume, treble, mid, bass controls. MusicMan includes a hardshell case with the Sterling 5 H Electric Bass.
