    He's also an incredibly nice guy. I met him at the Guitar Show last Saturday. Seemed very grounded.

    Another pedal on my want list, getting my head around £200 pedals isn't happening just yet though.

    This young fella has chops, cant think why he's only got 7.5k subs and 2 years.

    I found myself wishing they had done that for the Bassbreaker 007.

    The odds that I acquire a Boss MS-3 this year are increasing.

    That's LOVELY.
    I instantly thought "Axcess hard-tail", but the belly-cut is different to that on my Axcess ... so it is a new HP?
    Either way, yes.

    CJ Sutton, of Weber Speakers, replied to my email this morning. He confirmed that my estimation of the 10″ Blue Pup was correct, adding that its sensitivity is 95dB. In a rather rapid response to my follow-up message, he confirmed that the quite new DT10-P would give me a similar sound with a sensitivity rating of 93dB.

    With an estimated cranked volume of 103dB, I am now GASsing for a Fender Bassbreaker 007 combo with a Weber DT10-P speaker.


    EDIT: For reference, that volume estimate is roughly the same as a cranked ¾W amp feeding a 2x12 loaded with Celestion Vintage 30s.

    My current internal battle is getting an ML-1 Std Modern right as they become available, or waiting and saving up for either the Pro or a PRS Mark Holcomb.

    Why can't I just have all the guitars. :banghead:

    I would save for the ML-1 Pro Modern, using the Standard as a backup plan. The PRS Mark Holcomb has substantially different neck geometry, though Chapman Guitars has not published neck thickness measuremnts for any of their models.

    I have just discovered the benefits of chatting to a sales rep.
    Dean guitars were in my local shop and I got chatting with him about models I've owned and what I liked in them.
    He then let me play this: -

    Granted, it's only a cheap bolt on V but it had lovely thin neck and was a nice light weight.
    I re-kindled my V gas....
    So after some more chatting and finding out the ML I wanted isn't in stock until August due to CITIES (cites?) I found this: -
    [​IMG]
    It's like the evil brother to my old schenker retro v that I had for playing in drop B. Miss that V :(
    Could get another I suppose but I'd rather remember the one I had not one that may or may not be as good.
