^This. The others are hit and miss.

I had an Agile Valkyrie SG w/P-90's, even at the bottom of the Agile line it blew my MIK Epi G400 SG out of the water.

Thanks jthm_guitarist, will try that.



Thanks, I'm pretty sure I can fix it. But even if I can't, a former bandmate of mine is the guitar tech at the local big mom&pop, and I'm sure he can.
