    Re: Any arguments AGAINST MAS?

    You can only play one at a time. You don't need to choose which one to take to a jam. You get to know the quirks and strengths and weaknesses of the instrument intimately.

    Re: Blue Chip meltdown

    I use V-Picks, but every now and then I'll get out a Primetone, or a Jazzmando. It changes the response a bit, and it's good to be varied. You may well return to Blue Chip. You may not. The...

    I have been exceptionally satisfied with my epiphan mm40l and my Washburn m1s1b.

    They get a bit of hate here but they sound great and after a setup play beautifully.
