Just from the pics, the new trems look very sturdy. I wonder how well they work...flutter? return to neutral?

Interesting things to note:

-Why no update to the Fixed-Edge? Wouldn't the new design benefit this, so that you can leave your balls on? (yes, I know...)

-That is one [email protected]$$ string on the Mushok model. Which is sweet looking by the way, but I wish it was R-shaped.

I tried out the Edge Pro, felt just like a Lo Pro to me, no difference in feel. The ZR is a little different, more on that when I get to the trems section [which is last LOL]

The fixed bridge LP base mold was just made last year, I would never expect them to incurr that expense again.

YAY!!! I was worried they'd delete the DBK and UV777BK before I could get my hands on a new one! Maybe this will lead to a bunch of discounts on the 2002 versions to make room for the 2003... *rubs palms together*

Again, Kudos to you. And Kudos again!!

I dunno, I really like the Mushok Model. It would have just been cool to see one in Radius form too. I'm still undecided on this one so far.

And Rich...trems last? You evil son of a...

Thanks, Rich!

You know, the JS-100 is suddenly a MUCH more attractive guitar, and and finally seems worth its price!

And wha? The Mushok model is made in Korea and is the same price as the JS-100? Sweet! The RGT42 is right on that same $899 list target, too. And it looks so sweet with that flame veneer.

That new trem is making a LOT of the Korean line a LOT more attractive.

Am I the only one here who thinks the chrome looks MUCH better on the white than the cosmo ever did? That's one of the main reasons I never went for the 1000WP.
