Wow lots of great info. Clearly have a lot of looking around to do.

Any thoughts on that guy?
Not a huge fan of anything Yamaha, other than their Pianos for some reason, as I can't bring myself to buy such a personal thing from a company that makes Motorcycles to DVD Burners to Drums to Microchips. I dunno. I'd rather go from a company that only makes guitars and/or basses.
Also - are there any 5 strings out there that do not have all the controls as most of these do? I much prefer to maintain all my settings from my head and do not want to even have the option of screwing with the settings on the bass, as I know it'll distract me.
