  • Great Intermediate Bass

    As reviewed by JJ on 3/28/2011

    The Sterling Ray 34 is a sweet piece! Great tonal variation and active electronics. Midpoints on the tone knobs is a nice touch as well. The neck is by no means chunky and it feels like a dream. It is a very reliable bass that is road-ready! The color of the honeyburst model is impressive to say the least. Plays and sounds like a high-end Musicman and sounds great with slap playing. If you are looking for an excellent bass for under this price, then this is definitely a bass to test drive and consider purchasing.

  • Have a Budget? want a bass you'll love for years? this is it.

    As reviewed by Matt Maley on 7/6/2012

    As a young 18 year old player it is tough to find a good instrument you want to play with for many years to come with a limited budget, and still be able to pay this price. I searched far and wide and honestly this is the best on the market. I bought this christmas 2010 with gift cards and my own money and it is beautiful. I compared it to music man ray which this rich kid at my school bought right after I did and honestly other than some minor things they are exactly the same. Honestly if you removed the markings and told me it was the music man I wouldn't be able to tell the difference unless I compared them side by side. For anyone who has a budge but still wants a bass they will love for years this is the bass for you. And you can play literally any kind of music you want on it with all the options, turn the treble and bass up for some nasty slappin', turn the treble down and the bass and mid way up and its a P-bass, and everything in between.

  • Best for the Money !

    As reviewed by Chuck Rackley on 8/23/2011

    I recently had the chance to sit in with a friends band and he handed me his E B bass to play and I fell in love with it . I decided to go to G C and get one but when I got there I spotted this bass in the silver burst finish . I sat there with an E B and this Sterling for an hour going back and forth and could not find any real difference between the two . Asked my wife which she liked and she said the sterling was prettier ( which is true ) , bought it and couldn't be happier great product at less than half the price ! You won't be disappointed in this period . By the way I am a regular gigging musician who plays every week and this is my new bass of choice .
