I am VERY curious about how the Saratoga compares to the Czech-made Grendels. Anybody play one? I've heard a few references to them sounding 'thin.' I played a Grendel recently, and loved it. Since the Saratoga is made in Korea instead of the Czech Republic I wondered if there would be any difference. I currently play a Kingston 5 and am totally sold on MTD's build quality. I found an old thread where somebody said Fender's build quality was superior to MTD's. Of course, I laughed. Hard. My sub-$500 Kingston rivals everything I've seen and played under $1000 in fit, finish and build quality. Just wondering.
