Whats the difference tonally between ErnieBall MusicMan Stingrays and ErnieBall MusicMan Sterlings, and whats the difference in their electronics.

i heard that the EB MM sterling5 is alot similar to the stingray4 is this true?

and is there a tonal difference between stingray4s and stingray5s?
ampeg 6x10hlf fridge
washburn force 4
Gibson SG standard
HardWire TL-2

soon EB MusicMan stingray 4 or 5
isnt the sterling a cheaper alternative to the stingray?

i think the numbers at the end tell the number of strings dont they? so StingRay 5 is a five string? im not so good with basses, head over to the bass forum.
