    I am currently in a situation here I'm really satisfied with what I have. Still you guys always bring up something cool I still don't have, and GAS kicks in again :lol:.
    Nice one! How do you like that Varitone thing? (I suppose the Rotary switch is something like that)

    The Varitone is a switchable tone capacitor 1 sounds like a swamp full of hungry alligators 6 sounds like it is under water ;)

    So you don't like it then :D.
    I was just curious, because the Varitone things always steal a bit of Volume, since they are passive. I have a BC Rich with such a thing and I actually like it very much. But she has really Hot Humbuckers, so the Varitone just brings the Output down to more 'normal' Levels.
    I suspect this Guitar has lower Output Humbuckers, so I thought with the Varitone it might become all too weak.

    Another nice guitar congrats! Alright I gotta ask, you've been buying alot of nice guitars this year, did you hit the lottery or settle a lawsuit or a rich relative leave you some money?

    Actually I like them a lot, here is a good example of how it affects the sound of the guitar.

    Somehow it came across as the opposite;)
    As I have said, I have one in my BC Rich and although the Guitars are vastly different, the video has shown me the Varitone works quite similar.
    You can give Humbucker Guitars a bit of Fender 'chime' and that weird kind out- of phase Tone (Mr. Sharrard said it sounded like a transistor Radio)
    works great with more distorted tones.
    Yet I heard quite a few Guitarists stating that Varitone circuits are not useful.
