it's interesting to me that the Volume pot is 500K and the tone pot is 250K.

Probably to make them sound darker, and in my opinion, muddier. ESPECIALLY with a basswood body. I have a couple theories on this - I think Eddie's ears had become progressively sensitive to higher frequencies, and you can hear the brilliance in VH1, to the brown sound in Fair Warning and 1984, to compressed mud by 5150 on. Or that darker, muddier sound with hot pickups and effects masks sloppy play.

They're taking pre-orders now for December delivery:

Apparently these are MIM. A plus over the indo/china made stuff. shrug
But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

Check out the video of joe bonamassa shredding on an evh guitar. It’s pretty cool. You’ll have to use google. I can’t do a link on my phone. It’s smarter than me
