I'm a pretty big fan of Ibanez and I would much rather have the MM Stingray 5 HH. I played a Stingray 5 HH a few weeks ago and it was one a different level than the many Ibanezs I have owned and played. Ibanezs are great for the money and I'm sure the higher end ones are worth the money too but that MM was just awesome.
The junk's in the funk and the carrot's in the tort!!!
