    Battle of the cheapies here! I see Musician's Friend is unloading a bunch of Yamaha BB404s for $199. I figure they're nothing spectacular but likely pretty good bang for the buck. However, I've tried the OLP Sting Ray copy. I like the feel of the 4 (wasn't enthused about the 5 for what its worth). I also dig the single humbucker format not to mention the looks.

    So, has anyone check both axes out? I figure the OLP is all of $40 more give or take so I consider both equal price wise. What about quality, playability, and sound-wise?
