      Comments about Sterling by Music Man Albert Lee HH Electric Guitar:

      Great guitar for the money! I gigged with it Satuday night, and had the PRS with me, took it out for a few songs, then switched back to the Sterling. I have 2 Musicman SSS Albert Lees, always wanted a humbucker one, but couldn't justify spending the $$. Love the color (I've always been a sucker for those vintage Fender colors..)Fit and finish on this guitar is great, setup was good right out of the box, minor tweak on the truss rod....

      Buyer Beware Poor Quality

      By Flip

      from Colorado

      About Me Experienced

      Pros

        Cons

        • Poor Quality Craftsmanship

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sterling by Music Man Albert Lee HH Electric Guitar:

          Holes for 2 Point bridge bushings are drilled completely through to the rear term cavity. Besides the one I received I have now seen two others that already have stress cracks and will fail. American Alberts aren't drilled like this on tremolo versions. Mine already went back with the chunk of wood that busted out of the bushing hole. Can't believe Music Man or Sterling would want their name on this.

              I saw that they were making a AL Sterling, and it's Daphne Blue/tortoise to boot ... but oh wait, it has a trem. His current MM HH model is a hard tail. I would have ordered one of these in a second as a hard tail. Oh well, maybe next year.
