Greetings, long time Stingray enthusiast, first time EBMM Forum poster.

I am considering a few different used EBMM Sterling basses. Can someone tell me the main differences between a late 1990's/early 2000's, a 20teens, and a recent 2019 Sterling?

I've been looking around and can't seem to find much spec information for the older models.

Thanks!
- Shane

Hi Shane,
the first ones from 1993 had the bridge with mutes, different battery compartment and the recessed neckplate in the body.
The H models from late 90ties hadn't any significant differences to the current Sterling.

Thanks for the reply. I've played a 2019 Sterling and loved it. They changed the styling to match that of the stingray special, which is my current work horse, but I wasn't sure if they changed any of the specs. That's cool to hear that the specs have not changed. Great bass, I'm thinking about buying a Sterling 5 and put on some light d'addario NYXLs for some funky playing. Love the clarity from the bass.
