Basically, 4 stars for everything results in 5 overall is thanks to the amazing price. This is an entry-level bass, the cheapest the manufacturer produces, but the 4 stars I have given it for features, sound and quality are cost independent.

If I didn't know how inexpensive this instrument was, I would have assumed it costed twice as much. Sterling have done a great job of taking a classic Music Man and making it cheaper by replacing USA parts with Indonesian counterparts, in particular by sourcing local woods. The result is a fine facsimile of the substantially more expensive original.

In terms of features, it has a multi-piece (three in the case of the one I received) hard-wood body, a bolt-on neck, a thick rosewood fretboard, and is an active, one hum bass with an eq. All work as you would expect.

In terms of sound, despite having a slightly more restricted eq. than the US counterpart, it provides an excellent representation of that classic Music Man sound and is plenty versatile.

Regarding quality, the frets are well dressed, the action was great out of the box, the fretboard is lovely piece of wood and the three-piece body was well matched. The body does have a knot in it on the front, one that is highlighted by the body staining, that I wouldn't imagine Music Man would tolerate, but I think it gives it character and certainly doesn't detract from the instrument overall.

Assuming I didn't just get lucky with mine, if you are looking for an entry-cost bass that doesn't feel like one, I'd recommend one of these.

Great, straight out of the box

I have received my Sub ray 5 bass today.
It is exactly as described and of very good quality overall.
Finish is very good.
All hardware in good condition and well put together.
I have a "real" Musicman Stingray 4 too and while there is a big difference in the preamp/electronics the sound from the Sub bass is excellent, considering the price is less than 33% of the real deal.
However the 2 band active eq does not have anything close to the Musicman eq range and takes a bit of setting up to get a good balance but once done it sounds great.
Bass eq when pushed thunders into life and it really suits my playing style.
Strings are good and the low B resonates beautifully.
Frets are well dressed with no sharp edges.
Action was set fairly low out of the box and after a few tweeks I have it set even lower with no fret buzz experienced.
Bass has been well set up and intonation perfect, straight out of the box.
Good finish on body with no apparent flaws.
If I have one negative comment its around the bridge, it looks cheap and cosmetically very different from a real Stingray. I will probably replace the saddles at least soon. Tuners are adequate and no issues although obviously not as good as Schallers you would find on a Musican bass, but hey you still get a lot of bass for a fraction of the cost!
Overall I'm very happy with my purchase.
