Comments about Sterling by Music Man RAY35 5-String Electric Bass Guitar:

They are built very well and the sound is true to a US made Stingrays or Sterlings. I like the feel of the neck and the 6 bolt construction is very sturdy. The EQ is effective and sounds good; true sizzle on the treble. I got the natural Ray 35 with the 3 way switch is a nice touch for a few extra tones. The only con is I find it a bit heavy.
