Hello Fans, Friends, and Players of Sterling By Music Man instruments!

First off. Everybody here at Sterling By Music Man would like to wish all of you a very Happy New Year!
2013 is going to be a great year, and, for us here at SBMM, quite a BIG year, with the addition of new models, both bass and guitar

Well, here it is. The guitar lineup for 2013 from SBMM:

Welcome aboard!

I can't wait to give the JP70 a go, been a fan of the EBMM version for years but never enough to pay the price for one. This could be very interesting

That's great you've added a lefty. If I can get my hands on one, I'll be buying it.

Any thoughts as to the 7 string in lefty?

That trans green JP70 sounds like it could be a welcome addition to the herd.
