    I had to sell my bass earlier this year (Tobias Killer B) -USA made-and now need to replace it. I play country to blues to jazz. I like a warm round tone. I e not seen head to head comparisons with the five basses im considering and i would love to get your feedback or other suggestions. I have found these all used for around $450-500. Please no comments like just play them all and see what you like. Of course I do that, but they are not in the same places so im looking for feed back and sugestions from folks who know bass. Looking into PRS SE KESTRAL VS PEAVEY T-40 VS MTD SARATOGA VS G&L TRIBUTE L200 VS IBANEZ SR800 vs SPECTOR LEGEND KOREAN MADE
  2. If it were me and 450-500 was my max budget, I'd go for the PRS..Played a couple of them in stores and I thought they were very nice for the money..second choice would be the MTD..
  3. You had a Tobias so the MTD is the obvious choice, then I'd probably go with the Ibanez if it felt right. But I love the Asymetrical neck profile of the MTD's.
