    Living in Germany I've had some opportunity to try different Engls and I can assure you the Powerball (even V2) is the worst amp I'ver EVER played. But the Savage for example is a really awesome amp.

    These two are really making me drool hard, I just would have wanted different pickups (and I also wish ESP and other manufacturers would more models without floyds)

    One of the easiest things to fix, plus you can probably get money back by selling the BKs. I have accepted that I’m going to change out pickups since 95% of the time because I probably won’t like what a guitar comes with.

    The Reba Meyers demo made me think...
    Why is this sexist guitar industry only offering guitars with belly-cuts for us overweight dudes?
    I belive a boob-cut at the back of the upper horn would be an apropiate female counterpart.

    Contrary to what the sexist media wants you to think, there are females in the world with big fat bellies too. Also think of the pregnant female guitarists. They need the tummy bevel as well.

    Yeah. Good thinking .
    This would require an even bigger cut.
    And maybe we should have different sizes as well.
    Like a double D guitar.

    OK I am gonna stop here.
    Sorry for the silliness.

    Meh, I've always got a good sounds out of the Powerball Mk1 V2 I own. Even in a live setting. But you are right, they have much better heads.

    From the pics and video I've seen it looks like there aren't many Exhibition models--maybe like 30% the amount as the last few years--and half of the 'high end ESP' display is USA models.

    I have to admit I'm a little bummed.

    Those exhibition models probably caused a backup for the custom shop. They made a ton of them the last few years. Some of the ones from past years are still sitting for sale.

    Yeah. ESP Japan hasn’t even updated their site yet with anything. I wonder what’s happening, if anything is happening at all.

    The cab is probably a very important part also. I tried it with the matching ENGL cab but maybe something with more mids would be better.
