Gentlemen and any ladies that may or may not be present:
Some questions seem to be asked over and over and over and over and over again.
1. Should I buy a Sterling/Stingray/Bongo?
2. What kind of strings work on X bass?
3. Where can I get a pickguard?
4. What's so great about X bass?
5. What color blah blah blah.
Do yourself a favor. Before asking a question such as those above, USE THE SEARCH function. Many of the previous threads will have the information you seek and probably some you hadn't yet thought of.
Plus it keeps the clutter down.
