    So, I had a trade offer for a guitar that wasn't getting much play time and I decided that I should spend a few days only playing that one to be sure I wanted to do the deal.

    Well, it either back fired or was just what I needed, because I have absolutely fallen back in love with my '96 Custom 22. She plays and sounds like a dream.

    The Dragon I pickups scream through my 2 Channel "H" and the covers I added seem to have given them a tad sweeter tone than they had uncovered. They still chugga chugga with the best of 'em, but sound dreamier on clean stuff and single note lead noodling.

    Anywho, just wanted to share...

    Same phenomenon here with my MEQ. I'm ready willing and able to sell it, until I play it again.
