The dual humbucker Music Man Sterling is a 5-String Bass similar in shape to the Music Man StingRay, but shorter and narrower. The Sterling also features hot-rodded electronics: active 3-band preamp, 2 Music Man humbucker pickups with hum canceling phantom coil, and unique 5-way lever pickup selector (both coils in series mode, single coil, or both coils in parallel mode). Schaller BM tapered-post tuners. Volume, treble, mid, bass controls. Music Man includes a hardshell case with the 5-string Sterling Electric Bass.
The roasted maple neck has several performance benefits from its thermally modified microstructure: Adds dimensional stability and resistance to temperature and humidity changes Increases resistance to warping Reduces density while maintaining stiffness for a lighter neck with sufficient strength Yields a microstructure similar to naturally aged woods with lower moisture content More resonance and less damping Eliminates the need for hazardous chemical treatments Vibrational testing indicates that roasted maple exhibits clearer tone with a stronger fundamental than untreated maple samples
