Quick Hits:

If all four LEDs came on, something is wrong with your amp other than the power tubes. The chances of all four power tubes dying at once are tiny.

Sorry, this isn't a pickup or a string gauge issue.

This is, quite honestly, a scale and a flatwounds issue.
It may also be an amp issue.

We used the Vector SL from ISP Technologies a few years ago for ERGs. There's simply not enough power in a 100W amp to get what you want, and in a standard 4x12 the speakers themselves cut off below...

There is no "next logical step."

At this point you have everything you need to become an outstanding guitar player. More gear isn't going to do anything for you, but a lot of practice will.

Worth noting that the SX, Douglas and Hadean guitars are not exclusive to Rondo Music. Kurt just buys and resells.
