    What also puts me off so-called signature models is that they are the same as standard models, but with an inflated price tag and a few badges, etc.

    It is quite good to see one of the rare signature models that isn't like this. Some go wild. The ESP Ben Weinman is one that springs to mind. Different pickups, Evertune bridge, option of an internal wireless system, and it might have even been a shape he created if my memory serves me correctly.

    The other one being the PRS SE Zach Myers, because for a while you couldn't get a PRS hollowbody for under 2 grand other than that.

    Hmmm, I hadn’t thought of that. I wonder how well they would last?

    Not blocks but i put some stickers on the fretboard of my Ibanez atleast 10 years ago and they're still there, so probably quite well i should think.

    I've got a PRS SE Custom 24 and I can't speak highly of it enough. I love the pickups, the finish, everything. I've never been a big fan of coil taps on humbuckers, but on this guitar they sound great. I am mostly a Strat player, I love single coils. The PRS doesn't sound like one, but it has a very nice single-coil kind of sound in addition to the fatter humbuckers. Ergonomically, it's miles better than any Les Paul style.

    Go get it! :)

    This is mine:




    That colour is incredible. That's one thing PRS seem to do better than most these days.

    As a very guilty pleasure I went to see McBusted (I grew up in the 90s/early 2000s) and the bass player there used a Sterling with LEDs. Very cool 😎 

    Dougie Poynter is one of only people i can think of who uses a Sterling. Pretty much all of his are in flake finishes with LED's.

    Trying to avoid incessant "junk" email from every organisation I've ever been in contact with during my career sending me details of how they are dealing with CV... 😁

    I've been getting hundreds of these on my work accounts from companies i've never even heard of and most certainly haven't signed up to emails from.

  7. I use them on everything. I once killed a set of ernie balls in 30 minutes and haven't used anything but Elixir since. I will admit they don't sound the best on electric guitar but after 7 or 8 years of only using them i can't stand the feel of anything uncoated. Tried a set of D'Addario EXL on my electric and they lasted as long as it took Amazon to deliver another set of Elixirs.

    Does anyone know if there's a stockist in the North West for Elixirs, by any chance?

    PMT in Salford seemed to have a fairly substantial range when i was in there last weekend. I think Symphony in Wigan also does.

    Oh jeez, were they the last batch of the "imports" ? So what's your move now? 

    I ordered some KS10's the other day just to use in the meantime so i'll give those a good test tomorrow.
