Thought I'd run a quick poll to see what the forum favourite ME1 flavour is - colour excluded.

So what is it folks, and why?

Double cut stop for me... but then you knew that mate! :) Why... because it's my dream guitar and it's bloody awesome, beautiful, superb, amazing, incredible, stunning, fan-bloody-tastic! Yeah, I like it.

SCt is my favorite, but I dig them all :-)

Doublecut because it is prettier imho. Stoptail for tuning stability. The PRS trem is very good and I like how it feels under the palm of my hand, but it cannot match the stoptail for tuning stability (by design) and drop tuning on the fly.

So dc / stoptail / FBJ is the dream combo for me.

singlecut but I wish the pick up control was in the same place as it is in the SC58

I have all three configurations, and for me, no contest.

DC stoptail a clear favourite at the moment then, which I thought it might be....

I see I've gotta stick up for the doublecut trem. Killer, killer guitar. I don't actually use the trem much, but they just feel livelier than a stoptail to me.

I see yours has the 'Harlequin' effect like mine does (the stain has taken differently on the bottom left and top right of the top). Bernie Marsden's ME1 has the same feature...

I have 2 doublecut stoptails, but I've been thinking about possibly trading for one with a trem. Decisions, decisions...
