The phrase "no need for...bias adjustments" sounds definitive to me. Regardless of their goofy marketing terms, that sentence is rather clear in saying that you don't need to adjust the bias...

Most of the Traynor lineup doesn't need to be biased, but I'm not sure about the YCV50 specifically. It should be in the manual. In any case, even if it does need to be biased it won't hurt anything...

You don't need to worry about flatwounds going out of tune with pressure on a fretless. They pull out of tune on a fretted instrument because they glide easily perpendicular to the fret, and when you...

Anything loose in the preamp section generally sounds more like a thump than a rattle by the time it reaches the speaker. Plus, you'd hear it more clearly, not less, with the volume up. This sounds...

If you were looking at custom shop models, perhaps the quality argument would be true. With studios, not so much. I think the argument usually goes that if you want a Gibson, for some people only...

Nice. You've got plenty of good options, let us know what you end up with.

It's just the finish, it's not uncommon for guitars in this range to have a price difference based on the color. Often bursts are more expensive, as are translucent/transparent finishes.

The Topanga is excellent as well, though there are lots of really good spring units out there and not nearly as many plate ones. Plus I think spring is a bit less demanding, or easier to model, or...

I was in the same boat until I tried one and did not like it at all. The reverb was not fantastic and the lack of any real controls for it meant you were stuck with either "some" or "more" and no...
