Yes yes yes. The vibramate on my SG has been perfect, sustain is great, intonation is perfect, and everything is reversible. So totally worth the money.

Good choice! There will be a HUGE difference because you just bought a real interface, not a cheap preamp that has an afterthought AD/DA shoved in it. Enjoy!

you don't need FW. USB can be engineered to run just as well - my Apogee Duet 2 is USB 2.0 and runs better than most FW devices developed before it. Don't let that psyche you out.
