    Yeah, I didn't even know who Steve McBride was, but he has excellent taste -- I think the 408s are spectacular pickups. Plus he went and made it a singlecut. And a semihollowbody. Win^nth

    Simon is a killer player. Electric and acoustic.
    I could be quite happy with the guitar he came up with.

    I wouldn't throw that guitar out of bed for eating crackers. Does look a bit nekkid without the tone knob. Even though mine stay on 10 mostly, it is nice to have the option to roll off some highs. Then again, it would be interesting to hear 408s wired like that. I.E. I had a Strat that had a no-load tone control, you could bypass the pot, and there was definitely an audible difference. Cool!

    Yeah, I think practically everyone is used to there being a tone knob, I might have opted for a tone-knob push-toggle instead, for a true bypass, but I understand the decision to leave it out entirely.

    I know now why I'm still holding on buying a SC
    Maybe in a year or so this sig model will become a production model
    A man can dream can't he?

    I like it! The lack of tone knob reminds me of the EBMM EVH and Axis guitars.

    I dunno. I like it, but I always adjust the tone knob quite a bit.

    The volume knob IS the tone knob. Just ask EVH. VERY nice axe.
