    "What's the Difference Between A Stingray and a Sterling?"

    This is such a tired old question around here, and I seldom respond to it elsewhere unless someone says something completely ignorant, but tonight I just had to say:

    "The Stingray has hemotoxic venom while the Sterling has neurotoxic venom."

    Nice...I was completely settled on not responding to this thread.

    The Sterling really is a Stingray because the Sterling is actually a 4-string version of the Stingray5, which is a 5-string version of the Stingray. The Sterling5 is also a Stingray because it has the same electronics as the old Stingray5, which is a 5-string version of the Stingray.

    The Sterling 5 has the same electronics as the Stingray 5 ? I thought it was a different preamp ?

    Three-letter word before "Stingray 5"...

    It was a joke anyway.

    Tell me about it... I got stung by one of those bastards when I was swimming in Huntington Beach about 20 years ago. Hurt like hell. Oh yeah, Sterling has stung me with sarcasm once or twice as well. The Stingray was worse.
