2013 Blackmachine B6 just arrived in the mail. I've been wanting one for 10 years and finally had the chance to scoop one up. She joins some good company! As far as playing, it is excellent! Fast neck, each note rings out clearly through distortion, super lightweight, very comfortable to play, sounds HUGE, even sounds HUGE unplugged, and is incredibly punchy. I'm impressed and in love! I'm especially enjoying how stripped down it is compared to my EBMMs - quite a different beast. It's pretty inspiring to play and riffs just come naturally.
