Well, I'm thinking about ditching my 5502 for either a MMSR5 or possibly the SUB. What are the principle differences? Is the pickup the same in both? I see that the SUB is only available with an active 2 band as an option as opposed to the standard 3 band in the US model. What about fit, finish, tone and playability -- especially the B string. I'll be auditioning them soon but thought I'd get the heads up from you all. Thanks.
