We need to see Dev's seal of approval.... HONGSTA'D!
Smooth, dynamic, fluid violin like sustain, amp like characteristics, warm organic tonez - nope. A blind wolverine on PCP flying a fully loaded B-52 into the side of a volcano, the soundtrack to said event would be Stand Up and Shout by Dio - yes.
Think of it as a blue meanie SCB MKII but attitude of a Meathead. It is noticeably louder than any of the MKIIs I have and rougher around the edges (treading toward MKI territory). Cleans up really well (not quite like a FF but with many useful shades of crunch as you lower the guitar volume knob). I think of it as a more "evolved" MKII but still sounds vintage and crusty. All and all, I feel privileged to own/play this beast
