    I run my volume pedal in the FX loop too--that way, it doesn't affect my gain settings. That's what the volume control on the guitar is for.

    I have a Brent Mason, and I've tried a couple of 513's, not in a while, though. Considering it's been years since I tried a 513, I'll try to remember what I didn't like about it. As I recall, it had...

    There are a couple that drive me up the wall. "Chord" and "cord" for starters--a chord is what you get when you play three or more notes at once, and a cord is what gets those notes from your guitar...

    My Brent Mason has those pickups--408's, I think. There's no volume drop between humbucking and single-coil modes. I believe some of the "unused" coil is still on in the single-coil setting. It works!

    24 frets on, say, a 25" scale, won't change string vibration vs. a 24-3/4" or a 25-1/2", other than adding two more high notes on each string. The longer the scale length, the more tension is...
