    New color selection is terrible! All very trying to look "modern," none of the prettier, or more traditional finishes like natural. Also, the black hardware options are awful. Really hoping EBMM will do some more BFR Stingrays with a natural finish. Natural or wood grain finishes seem like bread n' butter Stringray finish - I don't understand how EBMM isn't offering a single bass in that option. Color options have always been limited in this line, but 2021 seems particularly bad. Not a single one of the current line of colors will make me buy.

    I didn't like any of the new colors either so was lucky enough to find a new Tectonic Blue Sparkle 4HH with ebony fret board a few days ago that had a born on date of just 3 and a half weeks ago. Not only is it gorgeous but I avoided the $100 price increase to boot.

    It's been a while, I've been out of the loop, but could it be green basses?

    There are a few explanations for this.

    1. FMIC bought the chickens out and the eggs have sucked ever since.
    2. Gibson bought the chickens and everyone knows the quality has fallen precipitously.
    3. The chickens are now all made in Asia and everyone knows what that means.
    4. The eggs from pre-1965 chickens were way better.

    Just fyi, the Sterling hasn't been discontinued. It is its own listing now though....and have they always had music-man sterling on the headstock?...I've never owned one.

    Don't be fooled by how they worded the listing, it's not the "Sterling by MM" I thought that was the case when I looked at the website until I checked the price....definitely EBMM.

    That is great news and so much better than talking about eggs.

    Serious question: Anyone have any inside info or rumors on whether MM is going to bring out any desirable colors/hardware options this year? The 2021 colors/hardware so far is some of the ugliest Stingrays I've ever seen. I was looking at add another Stringray to my gigging stable this year, but I'm not about to be go playing a purple glitter 'Ray with gold hardware. Can you imagine showing up to a rehearsal with something like that?

    I was thinking possibly this is all Covid-related - maybe MM is trying to clear out ugly hardware/paint inventory, or perhaps there has been a materials/labor shortage, and so they're assembling and shipping out what's left in the warehouse?

    Seriously, not even a single bass offered in the traditional black/chrome configuration, no natural finish, no good woodgrain finishes like the nice burnt amber, no charging green, etc.

    Anyone know if this is as good as is gets for 2021, and our only option is buying used?

    Colors are difficult things and are never something that is going to please everyone. I like the new colors. It is frustrating if you are in the market for something right now and the colors offered are not your cup of tea. But there is still new stock of last year's models available if you look around.
