    Looking at these, mainly at the G6119B Broadkaster. The newer G5440LSB was obviously made to capitalize on the unbelievable coolness factor of the G6119B Broadkaster. Price difference is large, but what are the main quality differences between them?

    Know nothing of the Broadkaster, but the LSB is long-scale, so ergonomics come into play big-time. Size may be the only significant difference between the two.

    Ah yes, the Broadkaster is short scale.

    The Broadkaster is made in Japan, I believe. How about the 5440?
