been a long time, and i was once an extreme MTD fanatic. once again, i am craving an MTD. don't really need another fiver, but i'd be willing to give something up. I just feel like i'd like to own something built by a living legend, Mike Tobias certainly is that to me, it all started with Mike back in '84. i would want a warm sounding one- the Norm Stockton's i have played (Myrtle top and Tulipwood bodies) have been nice and open sounding- that blue ash one that Andre Gouche owns taunts me. gotta talk to Mike and see what he's cooking up these days. and after viewing most of that MTD thread... i better get a grip.
