    I’ve been gassing for a five string for a while now and was hoping to get one sometime in the new year. However, my dad surprised me for Christmas by giving me a Sterling Ray 5! I’m stoked to get it home this weekend and try it through my amp. IMG_8989.JPG

    Nice!
    I've never had a Music Man.
    I gotta try one.

    I've always been interested in a dual pickup model. That is a fine bass and it looks great, have fun with it.

    That is very sweet looking. Is it setup well? Are you tweaking it?

    I have the SUB 5 and frickin' love it. Even with my tiny bitchmitts the neck is super easy to play on. I'm digging that satin red/rosewood look. Hadn't seen that on the Sterlings before!

    One word of advice if you've never played a Stingray style bass... USE THAT EQ! It's voiced very functionally rather than being "ADD CHEESEGRATER AND FART NOISE" knobs and you'll find it's integral to getting a variety of tones you wouldn't think possible.
