Hi Michael, I was wondering what your current thoughts are on the MTD heir. Right now I have a yamaha bbg5s that has noisy electronics, and I was thinking I might be better off getting a bass with no active electronics at all, and using my Fishman DI and it's 5 band EQ to shape the sound to my liking. I love the MM stingray sound, but I just cant afford one since my wife and I have a baby on the way. I could swing a Heir, but I can't find a place that has both the stingray and the heir in stock so I can A/B them. Do you still play your Heir, or have you moved on to something else, and why?
