    Which is more stronger? I need something with strength, weight isn't a factor for me, i'm buff, heh. (And i'm usta playing heavy guitar for long periods of time, jumpin around n such).

    thanks

    Well what i'm tring to decide is either going with the BTB405QM or Maybe something in the EDA series bout the same price (I really ani't to great on their "futuristic" looks though).

    You've played both, right? I have an EDB605 (luthite) and more and more I'm coming to the conclusion that I just don't like it's tone.
    I can get a more pleasing tone out of my daughters 3/4 scale Essex P-bass - but that's my opinion on tone.
    As far as strength I have banged my Ergo into everything in existance, knocked it it's stand several times, dropped it, whatever - it doesn't even go out of tune. It holds a set up for ever. It seems pretty tough to me.

    Well, the BTB405's are made outta basswood, quilted maple is only the top wood. Sound better than EDA's, tho.
