Sterling by Musicman Ray34Ca - alternatives with contoured body?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

I have the above bass which I love dearly. It sounds great the neck is totally ace. However the only gripe I have with it is the solid body. I find that after playing for a while it becomes uncomfortable on the forearm. So I wondered what are the alternatives in the stingray/sterling family with a contoured body and a 38mm nut.

Thanks in advance.

Tony

A 2 band USA Stingray?

Probably cheaper to just get a forearm chamfer done on your own bass by a luthier though

Just had a thought though.... A Stingray has a slightly wider neck so getting a contour done on your bass is probably the only option. Unless you get a Sterling SB14 or USA Sterling - these have the narrower neck but are a bit more aggressive sounding
