    I'm unaware of any non-solderless EMGs being made in recent tears (meaning, this millenium), it'd be really weird for you to have that, especially since it'd cost more money to install than just their regular setup.

    Thanks and really appreciate the feedback. I’m looking at an ec-401 with a Floyd (I need my Floyd). It has the specs I’m looking for and there are no other options around in lefty like that. But I’m also going to wait until after NAMM to see if any surprises pop up :)

    Most likely any surprise by then it would be these guitars will go up by 20% as they do every year.

    Yeah, you're probably right, I'll start taking that one apart as soon as I get thru my gig with Saxon in February.

    The old de rigeur SD combo? Meh, I am tired of that although it will probably sound pretty good. Don't like the JB, but I can put my PAF Joe from another guitar in the neck.
