S.U.B series bass from Sterling by Music man is a powerful and great sounding bass that gets 5 star ratings from everyone that reviews it in its class. These basses will out perform other basses costing much more. The humbucking pickup in this guitar has lots of output while still sounding clear and defined and not muddy at all. Narrow neck for easy playing up and down the neck even on this 5 string. Made well with 6 bold neck construction, quality hardware, bridge and tuners. Plus the classic look that makes music man recognizable worldwide.
