I got some cash for Christmas and I have two choices...the Kingston MTD 535 or the Geddy Lee Jazz. The MTD 535's I am seeing online say something about being made in Korea now to make them more affordable. Is this the same MTD 535 that Embellisher and others have been raving about? Is there a quality issue with them being produced in Korea? I am thinking of going to Sam Ash - there is one about a half hour from my house. Anyone from Chicago know if they deal or are their prices firm? I am also thinking of getting rid of my MIM P bass. Do they take trades? What would be a fair price for me to look for? The bass is only 6 months old. It is in as close to perfect condition as possible (never gigged and completely babied), and is completely stock except for 2 month old strings.
