The Music Man Sterling bass is fantastic 4 string bass, it has a similar body shape to the popular StingRay but is slightly shorter and narrower. This bass features an active 3 band preamp, a single Music Man humbucker with 3 way switching. The pickup switching works as follows... both coils in series mode, single coil and both coils in parallel mode. This all makes a very versatile bass for a single pickup!
