After running something like malware bytes go to the add ons bit on FF and look for adblock plus, works a treat.

The blackstar is decent, has a lot of gain on hand and does go fairly loud. It has two valves and uses them in some sort of way that it's like a driven amo even at low volumes.

Quite what that...

Shouldn't be like that with an A pot, normally get that sort of bollox from a B pot. The way the tone cap is wired in can affect the sound too.

I think sometimes the being able to actually try the guitar out and see it in person can sometimes be worth the extra. In every brand there's still often better ones than others.

Slash's pups sit almost flush with the pickup rings, seen a vid of a guy doing work on his actual LP. As for which guitar they're easy enough to swap out again if you want to try the other guitar.
