Apparently those Indonesian Ernie Balls are pretty good. Ed Friedland's done a bunch of YouTube reviews on a few models in the range. The fanboys at the EBMM forum talk them up.

What model is the SB14 - is that the Stingray 4 knock off?

It's the Sterling model. Ed liked it so much he bought the one he reviewed. He ended up selling it when he got a couple of USA Sterling 5 strings but it definitely got him hooked on EBMM and he gigged it for months. Two or three other people I know have tried the SB14 and been very impressed with the quality and tone.

MMs are awesome instruments and I'll always have at least one. The USA Sterling HH is my all-time fave.

I've only seen two SB14s sell used so far, they went for $450-475.
