No!

You are being led to believe that you don't know what IS right!

I just re-read that and it certainly sounds mean. To Harry. Such was not the intent and I apologize all to Hell and back. To Harry.

Did the closest A/B test I could today. Natural maple necked Sterling Ray 34 and a 3 band maple necked finished EBMM set to the center detent on all EQ. The action and pickup to string distance was the same as best I could tell.

Very very similar and that comparison to the G&L Tribute to USA is apt. The Sterling Ray had a little less bass and the USA had a bit of a better sound overall but so small it could have been the strings, variation in the magnet, wires, or the breed of dog that peed on the tree as it grew.

Best way to explain it is that 2 cooks make a pot of stew from the same recipe with the same stash of ingredients and seasonings.

One uses a bit more garlic than the other and a pinch of a seasoning the other didn't. You will notice and be able to say one has more garlic, and one has this other little thing you can't put your finger on but both taste 95% the same.

that was my observation on these as well, Jim.

I felt they were fine instruments, not even considering the price point.

I would like an all black sterling sr5 for a beach cruiser (beater) bass, thank you.... ;)

So how did the meeting with Sterling go? Did you get all the info that we're entitled to? [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]
