Known as the comfortable cousin of the StingRay, it's the Music Man Sterling with 2 pickups!
The Sterling's shape is similar to the StingRay, but shorter and narrower, with a slightly smaller neck (34" scale, 7.5" radius). It also features hot rodded electronics: active 3-band preamp, 2 MusicMan humbuckers with hum canceling phantom coils, and unique 5-way switching (individual humbuckers, both humbuckers, and selections of tapped coils from both pickups). Volume, treble, mid, bass controls. Includes hardshell case. Schaller BM tapered-post tuners.
- Compact body shape
- 34" scale
- Active 3-band preamp
- 2 Music Man humbuckers
- 5-way switching
It's an even more versatile version of the Sterling. Order this MusicMan classic and play big.

Comments about Music Man Sterling HH 4-String Bass:
I've owned American Fender P's, Fender J's (and have loved all of them), but recently bought a new Music Man Sterling 4 HH in Tobacco Sunburst. It is absolutely gorgeous, and is now the crown jewel of my bass collection. The craftsmanship is unsurpassed, the sound is incredible, and it has a neck "feel" similar to the USA Fender Jazz bass. Because of it's active electronics, there is a great array of tones that can be generated from a five-position switch located over the pickup controls. I've played in cover bands for over 35 years, playing a variety of rock, blues and motown, and this bass can do it all. As a side note, those of you that prefer P Basses will probably feel more at home with the Music Man Stingray, which has a neck and body that "feels" like a P-bass. If you prefer the J-bass "feel", this bass (Sterling) has a neck that you will feel at home with. The double humbucker version of either model will simply take your breath away! If you can spare the extra bucks, it's worth every penny!
