    ...and if anything, the BTB looks like ''it" (the MTD has been around much longer;))

    Sweet bass?

    Tell me about it. I've been drooling over American MTD's constantly for the past couple of years. I and will probably never afford to buy one. :(

    Sweet bass? There are two basses on my short list: Elrick (which I haven't tried yet) and the MTD 535, which is about the only bass I've tried in a 5 that I actually liked:D

    MTD 535's (the 3 I played, anyway) are among the easiest to play most versatile sounding instruments I've come across:D

    oops.. oh yea that's what i meant... sorry, i don't even think ibanez is an asian word, i know the difference, but i keep switching the 2 words... and yea i'm sure the MTD plays better etc, and has been around longer.. but they look like similiar body styles to me, just thought i'd point it out.

    They looked so good and expensive I didn't even bother to play one. Watched a guy play one though. Probably not in my lifetime.
     
  12. Here's another nice MTD:

    I piddled around with a black MTD lightwave 5 @ the NAMM show. I need to FULLY understand them before I can make an honest judgement on them.
