So, I've actually had this dude for about a week now, and I've been nothing but impressed. The tonal range is insane, mostly due to the bass contour control. Initially, I thought the idea was a bit gimmicky, but in practice it works amazingly well. When I went to the guitar store I was actually hoping that they'd still have a roundhouse hb still in stock, as the les paul sound was the goal I had in mind. This ended up being the only roundhouse they had left, but I think I accidentally stumbled onto something much more versatile. I hadn't played mini humbuckers prior, but fattened up with the bass contour they seem like they can get close to a full HB sound, and I'm quite pleased. This guitar was set up perfectly right off the shelf, insanely nice action, it practically plays itself. I'm still futzing around with finding a nice low gain sound with it, however I can't honestly say I've found a bad sound out of it. Hopefully I'll have some pics later.
