    I'm ordering a new MTD Heir with the active electronics. It won't be available until Sept. I'm having trouble deciding between the transparent red or the tabacco sunburst. Which one do you guys like? Not the best pics but all I could find online.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think I just made up my mind. I found this pic of a saratoga in the translucent cherry which is what the Heirs are going to be. Looks Sweet!!

    I think they both look cool, but as you can see from the Roscoe in my avatar, I like red basses too. Honestly, you'll love whichever one you get. Looks like the Red is the one most people have a connection with. Go Red. You won't regret it. Looks great! Those new active MTD's should be real value leaders from what I can tell! Keep us posted.

    September sounds so faaaar away.

    definately go for the red color. For some reason, I don't like the looks of MTDs burst finishes...they just don't flow right to me.
