    just when I thought I wanted a stingray.......

    I went to guitar center today, to see if they got any SR4 HH in stock yet, which they didn't. I did see on a wall a sterling HS, so I decided to give it a try. This thing rocked. I spent a little over an hour playing with it. The neck felt perfect to me. Looks like I'll be getting a HH sterling now.

    I agree with you totally. I have a SUB and a SUB Sterling. (Bought 'em used after the line got discontinued.) I like the Sterling neck much better now that I've played both of them for a while. You know 10 minutes at GC can't compare to hours of practicing. So I'm really happy I ordered a Sterling rather than a Stingray so I'm in your camp. To each his own...

    There are a lot of Sterling HS fans here but the HH Sterling is the one for me.

    Well, I'll actually have two when the DDs come out but you know what I mean...

    I can't wait to order one. I'm thinking of selling my ludwig drums to buy one.

    Really? Cool. Do you remember where he said that and why? I'm curious.

    Why does BP continue to play those nasty Bongos?

    Bongos, on the other hand, sound best in the single H format. Pretty ironic...

    Sterlings are the way to go.

    Good choice...

    I came close to a Stingray too - that's what was in stock in a config that worked for me - but I kept going back to the Sterling...

    That's the one that feels perfect to me!
    It's all about the bass!

    I was actually at GC today as well, was looking at GK cabs, found a vintage sunburst SR4 HH and fell in love. THEN I saw a shop worn Bongo 4 HH for under $800, almost walked with that.
