    Better definition. More focused cleans and gains. It is a monster now. I played NOS and new version back to back and it killed the original. imo. Doug made it a tone monster!!!!

    Some of the commoners, the ones with the more filthy habits no doubt, actually use a - ahem - white grease pencil to mark the spots. I know this is impossible for you, as are small stickers on the surface of the face plate of the amp, so may I suggest an alternative that might work?

    Certain of these serfs will draw upon a sheet of ordinary paper, small circles to represent the knobs on the amp. After they have found an appropriate setting, they will place upon these circles a small mark. This mark designates a certain setting. They will then label this sheet of paper, after all circles have been marked, "Clean Setting." They will then cunningly reproduce upon another sheet of paper, similar circles, and lo, they will then mark said circles with a certain setting, and place upon said sheet of paper the title, "Gain Setting." And they will do this for as many settings as they have, thereby recording for posterity their favored settings! Clever subjects, are they not?

    Moreover, certain of the -ahem-middle class of your subjects have acquired an electronic device capable of being carried in their pockets for voice communications that will also take photographs, almighty one! And said photographs can be taken of amp settings instead of the use of the circles and the paper!

    Even more incredible, sire, is the fact that certain of these subjects have discovered that the circular control knobs on their instruments are actually capable of controlling the amount of gain that the amp produces, and realizing this, are able to use said knobs to play both clean and with higher gain upon the same settings of said amplifier!

    Furthermore, certain of your subjects are able to use one of their three amps for a clean amp, and the other two for gain amps, without touching their amplifier's control knobs at all other than to set them up on any given day! Said commoners then are able to make several choices among their tones at one sitting, and among said amps, mirabile dictu, they are capable of rotating which amp between said three will be the clean amp for such day!

    Les...this post killed me!!! LOL!!!!

    Aw, I'm not picking on folks, I always figure you and my other friends are in on the jokes!

    I'm OCD too. I mean, I have an amp settings notebook fergodsakes!!! Like I couldn't remember where to put the knobs.

    I'm as bad as you are. That's why I recognize the symptoms.

    I called this one months ago back in the BaM days, that a guitar like this would be made. The 408 pickups started out in the private stock arena, then moved on the Siggy's at half the price, and now they're going to make a guitar called the "408" that is simply a Siggy but without the sinker mahogany neck, and maybe a few less accouterments.

    This was and is my prediction. Just there's a model called the 513, now there'll be a 408.

    We'll see what they demo. Can't wait!!!

    I think it'll be trem...it's billed as a se custom 24 7 string, so...that's my guess.
