    Wow, a post like this seems to be tempting fate. My headstock dings typically come from a ceiling fan.

    Be patient. The Big Al pops up in online classifieds, and the prices I've seen over the past few months at TB aren't much different from when they were still in production. I originally bought a 4H...

    I have a 98 Sterling fretless, same honeyburst finish with a pao ferro board. It came with a white pickguard but I switched to black, and stuck with it. Best choice IMO

    Very nice! Looks like my Sterling fretless, except mine was born that way. A previous owner sent my bass to Mike Lull to do a coated fingerboard, and I'm a big fan.
