So this isn't "MIM vs CS" at all, you just want to know how to upgrade your MIM?

A good setup and fret level/dress will maximize the playability. Start here, no sense in trying to upgrade a guitar...

No. Do not ever connect the outputs from two amps of any kind without something specifically designed to isolate them from each other in between.

Do you mean just pulling the chassis and putting it in the cab from the limited edition? Should work, I doubt the dimensions are different.

What do you hope to achieve with the variable wattage? I see a 15/7.5 watt amp on the same list with a 100/5 watt amp and I'm wondering how much wattage you really need?

It also makes me worry that...

Whatever you do, I would not order your next guitar blind. It takes a long time and it is often more expensive but I'd still suggest buying in person from a store. It's just so hard to be picky over...

Lowering volume by decreasing efficiency absolutely describes an attenuator. I'd call the fluxtone speaker an attenuating device. I also doubt very much that the tone is unchanged - less drastic than...

You can do basically whatever you want between the guitar and the amp input, there's almost nothing you can do to cause damage there. An A/B box in front would let you switch between the amps easily...

The impedance is fine, set the amp to 16 ohms and plug in to the 16 ohm input on the cab. I'm assuming that it's mono.

However, you need to consider wattage. The cab must be rated at 120W or more,...

You could take it back and get a better guitar and amp for that money?

I'm quite sure you could get an Ibanez or a Dinky and a Vypyr for $400. I assume you're playing metal.

Most commercial attenuators are an L-pad with a few extra tweaks to make them sound better, but they all mess with your tone severely. I think most people are much better off...

Hard to tell for sure from those pictures, it looks promising but the Supreme was/is one of the more commonly faked Gibsons. The fact that it's (allegedly) older helps, fakes in 2005 were a lot more...
