    Stingray in 2018

    After waiting 13 months for my first EBMM Sterling to arrive. I finally got it 3 weeks ago and it is just amazing.

    So I decided to let go one of my basses to found another EBMM.

    To my surprise, the clerk told me that they just received the listing for 2018 and in it no one can order a left handed Stingray 5.

    After seeing them avalaible for so long for lefties ... it is finally over ? once I have the hability to buy one ?

    Oh yeah no pic no bass eh ?

    This is what I feared. It may mean they'll never do one in lefty ever again

    killa' rig. I love the Sterlings.

    does the single H fill your needs?

    I'm looking for a used 4HH but none to be found.

    Lots of single H's out there..

    Yes it is my first single pickup bass and it is fine. The switch help getting a different tone and of course technic and the active preamp.

    I'm the kind of guy that set a tone that work for the session and keep it.

    Does anyone have news about lefties in the future? I'm interested in those new lightweight Stingrays. I would have ordered one since Burnt Apple is one of my favorite finishes ever. I remember (being a poor student) drooling over the finish when it was a regular finish some years ago. I'd love a lefty lightweight Stingray in that color.

    I would assume lefties will arrive should the new stingray special become a success. We'll have to wait and see. Unfortunately the lefty market is quite a bit less than the "standard" configuration.
