    i'v been debating much the same thing, 5 strings.
    i'v been looking at the Ibanez BTB's and MTD Kingstons

    For $500, the MTD Kingston, no doubt. Best 5 under $1000.

    tne MTD smokes the MIM fender V by far. i'm with embellisher. go with the MTD
  6. I would agree because I own one but other people like Embellisher tend to disagree. I say go out there and play them , and decide which one you like the best. Thats what I did. Mind you, I New Zealand there isn't a huge choice.

    Definitely try the BTB's. I would have bought one if I hadn't have got the sweet deal on my Fender
