    Nerdy tech question, Sterling vs MusicMan

    Hey all!
    Just a very quick question, I purchased the Sterling Valentine and I love the quality and tone,
    the only minor gripe is the fret height, it seems a lot shorter than I am used to

    On the website it's just listed as "narrow" width but no word on the height

    I was just wondering if anyone knows if there is a big difference (fret height wise) between the sterling version and the MM version?

    I'd love to buy the new tremolo valentine, this is just the tiny thing that is holding me back,



    Thanks for your time,
    Pat

    I don't have an SBMM to compare it to but my EBMM Valentine frets appear to be just about 1mm.

    No problem... hope it helps. To me the frets feel, size wise, a lot like modern Fenders. Certainly not low.
