That screw idea is an awesome tip man :) I just did that on my backup MiM to see if it would help. Just ran through Star Spangled Banner with all those crazy dives and shakes and it's still in tune....

The trem on the current MiM models (I believe anything after '11) isn't that bad. Can you do crazy Hendrix 'Star Spangled Banner' stuff and stay perfectly in tune? no. Can you use it for more...

Nah, I think it was just the stupidity of that post. I definitely lost a few brain cells reading it ;)

I don't know how many though because I lost my ability to count after I read it.

Go peruse eBay for some M50s if you can. I've seen them go used for as low as $60 (USD. That'd be like 40 pounds). There's nothing wrong with used cans as long as they work, and I can tell you the...
