Re: MM jp6 vs Sterling by MM jp60

The sterling has a different build and finish quality overall, lower quality trem, obviously non-dimarzio pups (as you said), no stainless steel frets, 16" radius only on sterlings and over the range of different EBMM JP's there are many more wood, radius and color options and sometimes even rosewood neck options.
