Music Man Sterling HS 4 Natural Ash Bass Guitar
For sale is Music Man Sterling 4 HS Natural. It is a rather rare and good 4-string Music Man bass. The bass is made of a single-piece! ash and maple neck with maple fingerboard. It looks wonderfully in a natural color; ash has a very beautiful and bright texture. The wood works together with a wonderful ernie ball electronics: humbucker with coil cancelling, single humbucker at the neck, 5-way switch and 3-band EQ. The sound can be versatile. The instrument sits well in the mix; smooth and in its place. Ergonomically, the bass is perfectly made – neck is wonderful, very fast and comfortable at any range. Everything is well-balanced concerning both sound and convenience. Who is acquainted with StingRays, but not with Sterlings, I will explain the difference briefly. Sound: Sterlings have a little bit different electronics and pickups with ceramic magnets, whereas latest StingRays have alnico magnets, and due to this Sterling sound is brighter at low-mids range with more roar and growl. Output level is also higher. Ergonomics: Sterling’s body is smaller, neck has thinner profile and it seemed more comfortable to me than on StingRays. But many men – many minds, and I like both StingRays and Sterlings. This bass is in perfect technical and cosmetic condition. It is tuned and ready to play. The only visible marks of usage are some darkening of maple fingerboard because of playing. It includes the original hardshell case. Don’t miss the modern and wonderful instrument! SOLD!
