    My Corellas are on the way! Just picked up a new switch, jack, and pot... pretty soon the Rhoads will be brought back to life!

    Yeah, probably. I need to weigh my options though. The VH-4 looks sweet.

    I loved the Archon. Never had a noise problem though.

    I heard the first year models had problems with the FX loop, causing tons of noise.

    Wasn't a first year and it wasn't the loop. PRS amps just hate my house. The two I've had were both fine elsewhere. I've tried everything I could think of on them including RF filter caps and shielding the head shells and still just tons of static and noise here. It is weird as hell. There is just something about their designs that is susceptible to something about either the power or RF interference frequencies here.

    VH4 is an awesome amp, but definitely check out the Herbert and if it suits your needs, the Paul.

    Or not buy PRS amps :lol: The most I have had to do to any of the other amps I've had was add an RF filter cap at the input.

    Juggling between the Helix or the LTD Phoenix. Most likely will settle on the Helix since I got plenty of guitars. :lol:

    After that I plan on going crazy with actives to try them out. Fluence Moderns, EMG X-series, 57/66, Het Set, Bonebreakers, and even trying the Marty Friedman set.

    I liked the Alexi set with a second H2 in the neck.

    EDIT: $189 for a set of EMG HZs just because they are Marty Friedman signature pickups?

    Rob Turner, dude, you're fucking stoned. :rofl:

    At least for me anyway, the D Moll isn't that attractive anymore. In that form factor and price, I prefer the Paul and they cover most of the same ground. After that the D Moll is just a smaller Herbert without a lot of what makes Herbert Herbert. Obviously, try and play some if you can.

    After talking to someone about them, I'm gonna give the Bonebreakers a try for sure.
