    Comments about Sterling by Music Man RAY34 Electric Bass Guitar:

    Beautiful bass. Maple neck with figure maple (?) fingerboard. The Pacific Blue Burst Maple finish is very nice, but not as defined as shown on the photo on the Musicians Friend website. The gradation between the black and blue is more subtle.
    The set-up and intonation were very good right out of the box. I didn't have to tweak anything, which is a first. The action is very good. I love the tone and the tone controls are great, except that the bass control is where the treble control should be, and vice-versa. Same as my 5-string MusicMan bass. I guess it's a MusicMan tradition. Looks to me like this bass is a kind of "re-issue" of the 1970's vintage MusicMan bass.
    The only thing I don't like about this bass, and it's significant, is it is VERY HEAVY (10.5 pounds). I'm 68 years old and in good shape (for 68) but this bass wears me out if I stand to play it for an hour. May have been a different experience for me at 28, but not now. My Ibanez SR650 weighs 8.0 pounds and is much more comfortable to play than the Ray34, BUT, the Ray34 sounds great, plays great, and is beautiful. I love it despite it being overweight.
