Much appreciated for all these posts. It does seem the market is not as much of a deal as I imagined. The ESP Edwards range seems pretty good, I may try get one of those.

I don't mind really.

It's like how I'll much more prefer an old dusty worn book over a new shiny fresh book. As long as the playability hasn't been compromised then I'll be happy to own it.
