    Ok, I'm looking into an Ibanez BTB, I played the standard (non-bart) 405 at a guitar shop and I loved it. So I'm at the ibanez website (www.ibanez.com) and I'm looking at the bartolini verions - the 1005E and the 515E, and I honestly cannot tell the difference between the two models at all. Can anyone help me out? have you played the BTBs? Do you like them? DO you hate them? What *IS* the difference between the two - 1005e and 515e?

    thanks

    The difference as far as I can see is mahogany (515) vs. flame maple/mahogany/maple body (1005). Mostly cosmetics.
