Re: EP9 - is it a blem?
That's so funny because I was just talking to a guy at work today who said we get that call every once in awhile. Someone will ask "what does that trash can mean?" and "does the X through it mean that it's passed inspection?" I was amazed. It's a new directive for the European Union and it's having all kinds of ridiculous side effects, like we have to test certain metals and metal plating to see if miniscule ammounts of some element will leak out over time if it's thrown out and ends up in a landfill. So you end up with some silly things, like you can't use the solder you want to use, you have to use lead free, etc.
Why the heck a guitar would have to post that it's RoHS compliant I'll never know. I guess it's about the preamp/electronics, but I would think they could post it on there. Oh well, it would probably scrape off pretty easily if you didn't like it. It doesn't affect you at resale.
