Yamaha vs. The Rest

  1. How does the MTD K5 passive hold up against similarly priced 5-ers? How would it stack up vs. the G&L Tribute L-2500 and the new Yamaha RBX 375 in particular? I'm definitely leaning toward the MTD, followed closely by the G&L Tribute L-2500 at the moment (both Korean made). Although I'd be looking to upgrade the electronics in the K5 if I opt for the MTD, I prefer the look of the passive K5 to the newer active K5's and also to the Heir. Looks aren't the primary concern, of course, but when you really dig your axe it affects the way you approach playing.
