I think in the last thread we had on OLPs, the general consensus is that they made good to excellent starter instruments and made had a nice punchy tone, but were nothing in comparison to their older brothers.

ive tried a five string olp, the most horrible 5 strigns ive every played, maybe i iwas just unlucky i got a **** one. OLP's quality isnt consistant so do not, i repeat DO NOT buy one off the internet, chances are it wont play or sound like the one you tried in the shop.

I had the same problem, also with a 5 string and also bought it off teh internetz... Think the moral of the story is don't buy a cheap instrument unless you've tried it first.

I also found the sound on my old MM3 to lack balls for want of a better word, didn't quite have the low or high end I was looking for, and the mids weren't great either... Then again I did upgrade to a Warwick so maybe I'm being a bit harsh. Also hte MM22 and 32 are active if I remember correctly so maybe the pickups/electronics will give a more ballsy sound

TS youre in the UK right? try Vintage basses by trev wilkinson. ive played their MM copies, felt amazing for less than £200, most shops in UK should have some vintage in stock.
