Not bad for a low end bass

    Comments about Sterling by Music Man SUB Series StingRay 4 Electric Bass Guitar:

    I purchased this bass on a whim while at our local guitar shop. The price was right, I always wanted a Stingray styled instrument, and I wanted a beater spare.

    The Good: Overall, lot's of bang for the buck here. It came out of the box setup perfectly, and quite frankly I was SHOCKED at how ultra low the action was. Fit and finish were all excellent right out of the box as well.

    The Bad: The only downside to this bass are the electronics. The pre-amp is simply horrid. Boosting the bass side of the 2 band eq even the slightest amount results in distorted tones. Even with the pickup lowered as far as it would go, I just couldn't boost the EQ without experiencing some amount of distortion. If you check the popular bass forums this is a known problem with the Sub model Stingrays. I'm going to try pulling the pre-amp altogether and run the pickup passively. If that doesn't work, I've already decided it's worth springing for a new Seymour Duncan replacement system.

    All in all, it's a solid bass for the price. It plays better than many of the more expensive basses I've owned.
