want a hybrid very badly and was pretty much set on the t5, probably the limited edition thats not much over a grand but i have read alot of good things about the crafter sa... and its far less expensive and although it is clearly modeled after the t5 the blender slider is quite a bit different.. please share your experience with either instrument and the pros and cons of each also if you know a good online site for a deal on a crafter thank you
