Hey, you got the Sambora! =D How's it sound?

Also, as I'm considering one, I couldn't help but notice the Micro POG in the background. What are your thoughts on it?

Yeah I ended up getting the Sambora. It wasn't the 'smart' choice but picking it up, it felt the best in my hands. Sounds pretty good, swapped out the pickups for a generic SD Jazz/JB combo and it's a good all-rounder.

Micro POG's pretty good, though only if you're going to mask the tone with heavy distortion or some other radically tone-altering effect. The tone it generates doesn't sound at all natural, it's almost a midi tone. I use it followed by a Digitech acoustic simulator and get a good 12-string tone out of it, and that's pretty good. Works really nicely with lots of fuzz distortion as well. Clean though, it's kind of crap.

Glad to hear you're happy with it. ^^

Not a problem, most of what I've been writing lately is either drenched in fuzz, or is acoustic, so that should work fine. Much appreciated for the owners take on it.
