Sterling by Music Man : Left Handed Guitars 2013

Sterling by Music Man produce a range of instruments licensed by Ernie Ball Music Man and built overseas in Indonesia.  They produce a range of guitars and basses modelled after their Music Man siblings but at a much more affordable price range.

So what has changed since last year?  Well we still have the excellent Ray34 bass, but this time we have a Natural finish rather than the Honeyburst version we had in 2012. New for 2013 is the first left handed electric guitar to be offered by the company – check out the JP60 below.

    I sent an email to the VP at Music Man, but received no reply. Hopefully they’ve at least taken my thoughts on board, we’ll see.

    I recently bought a Music Man and it’s by far the best guitar I’ve ever had for lefty’s. They don’t make everything in left handed, but they do make a better instrument then most of the big dogs.

    If the quality is even close with this I might be tempted to pick one up if I can trade out a few old epiphones or something for it.
