"Great value!"
Overall: Nice "S" style guitar. It's comfortable in your hands, and is solidly built. The pickups are a bit weak, but still have decent tone clean or dirty. You'll either like the neck or you won't. It's fat and round...no slim taper or wizard neck here! However, it's surprisingly easy to play, and it's fast. The setup was pretty good out of the box...not too much tweaking needed. Throw on some 10's, and you're good to go! Tuners seem solid and the trem is stable. For the money, get this instead of the Squiers, Ibanez Gio series or other budget guitars...overall, Sterling did a fine job with this one!
Style of Music: Anything but rap or hip hop!!!

"Sterling Musicman Silo 3 Tobacco Sunburst"
Overall: Guitar is very attractive, beautiful color and has great action on the neck. It is a good value for the money. Buyer Beware...Had an issue with the input jack called Sterling Music Man Several times and they could care less about customer service and honoring their warranty. Will dump this guitar for that very reason. zZounds is a great company and extended all the assistance they could, Sterling Music Man did not, a complete Zero. Buy Yamaha , Fender always the best support.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
