I'm comfortable with the jazz bass neck but I read that the stingray has wider neck.

also how can tell if it's an actual musicman and not one their sub or "sterling by musicman"?

thanks.

The Stringray has a bit chunkier of a neck than the Jazz bass, it's more like the P-bass neck. The Sterling is a little bit more streamlined like the jazz neck.


Agreed. If you want a EBMM closer to the Jazz feel and heft a Sterling is more in line with what will feel better.

thanks.

I'll be sure to check out both the sterling and stingray next time I visit GC.

too bad there's nobody selling a sterling on my local CL here.

Fixed <_< >_>. Love ya really

TS, I've found that in my case, the difference between a P-bass style neck and a J-bass style neck doesn't really hamper my playing as much as one would think.

However, I also play 6 string basses and Warwicks, so not much help there
