    I've got approx £10k to spend on either a late td5 or an early disco 3.
    What would the forum suggest.
    Thanks for the help

    I dont have a problem with a defender but it might be a little "agricultural" - Ive had a couple and I love em!

    I make furniture for a living and I need to deliver smaller pieces now and then.

    Im more concerned about the bad press on late TD5's and early discos 3's

    If you love Fenders why not just get one then:confused::confused::confused:
    If its for your business get it sign written/decent stickers and it would look sorted;):cool::cool:
    They are "Agricultural", but you already know that, but they are also Iconic and people would notice it more, a good thing if its advertising your business... Yes:D:D

    Can't help with the Disco's, but that's what I would definitely think about;)

    out of the two I would definiteley go for a late td5. I've had problems with D3s falling apart and breaking and just being generally unreliable, that and its a big ugly characterless square box.

    given the choice though, probably a tidy 110 or 130.

    Yup, get the latest, lowest mileage TD5 you can get for the money.
