^Well the battery before was deader than hell, so the output was lacking some... just seemed like when I cranked it and put it next to my LTD that it didnt have as much output.

i meant bypassing the tone knob- he asked if that'd cut mids. it'd probably just make it a little brighter.

Im sorry, but it is probably the ugliest, tackiest, pre-pubescent guitar I have ever seen.
But if you are happy then my opinion is irrelevant! HNGD!

I thought EMGs had those clippy things... HNGD!

It always makes my day when a big company like GC gets screwed without realizing it. I like to support mom and pop stores, but its hard to pay an extra 3-400 dollars on something sometimes. Im glad you got a killer deal!

that's why you have to use new batteries.

new batteries boost mids.

that's the first ngd post that's made me go "oooh" in an almost sexual way! Now that thing looks sick as ****!! How much did you actually pay? You said the pups and trem are worth more than the cost, so over here in the uk that puts it under 380 which is dirt cheap for that spec!!

They had it listed for $275, but I actually paid $315 after the taxes and shipping costs, which is roughly 195. Thanks for the love guys, I am getting a Zoom camera/mic and a pro tools audio interface for Christmas, so I'll be sure to post some videos and sound clips for everyone!
