    NAMM Preview - Sterling By Music Man Basses

    Hello Fans, Friends, and Players of Sterling By Music Man instruments!

    First off. Everybody here at Sterling By Music Man would like to wish all of you a very Happy New Year!
    2013 is going to be a great year, and, for us here at SBMM, quite a BIG year, with the addition of new models, both bass and guitar (I've posted the guitar news on the Guitar Forum).

    We would also like to extend a huge and heartfelt THANKS to BP and the Ball Family for allowing us to do what we do here at SBMM!

    Well, here it is.
    The Bass lineup for 2013 from SBMM:

    Ray34CAFL Fretless!
    With it's 38mm nut, slab body, and "Vintage Tinted" neck, Ray34CAFL is the perfect vehicle for our addition of a Fretless Bass to the Sterling By Music Man product offering for 2013!

    Transparent White Blonde - 2013 Limited Edition - What color pick guard and pup cover? White might look cool. If a black pup cover I would tort that in a heartbeat.

    Morning Brian,

    Are the nut widths on the Ray34 the same as a U.S. Stingrays or are they also 38mm?

    Thanks,
