    Thanks man! Since that clip was made, I've been experimenting with adding more low mids to the tone, as they are fairly scooped, to give it a bit more body. But still I don't want to let go of the higher mid snarl that is present in this clip. Tweaking, tweaking... :D

    I hear you! The practically limitless tweakability is just amazing! Though, at the same time, the total freedom makes me a slave of the unit :lol:

    Yeah, I have one on order from the 2011 run. I know Rob's working on it, but I don't know where in the process he is.

    And who has that one on ebay? I would expect it was someone on here, because I can't imagine how someone would know about the run outside of SSO. I just bumped the old specs thread to ask.

    Ah, well that would make sense then. I don't remember seeing an NGD for it, but that doesn't mean much. I do an NGD for every new guitar I get, but that probably says more about my lack of a social life than an obligation to show new purchases to online friends.

    3 years? Holy patience good friend. the guy on ebay is cool as beans. bought from him outside of ebay and have kept in contact since. I don't care for the headstock or I'd jump on it.

    Yeah, but I don't know that any of us from 3 years ago has their 8 scales yet, right? That was the run that Rob said had no defined build date, so I guess we just have to wait it out. I do know he's working on it, because I emailed him a few months ago and he apologized for it taking so long. It will be cool when it's done though!

    Weren't you working out some cool inlay, semi-hollow thing? The flat black one that never showed up was coooool.

    Yep! If I can find a pic in the specs thread I'll post it here....

    EDIT: Found it!

    EDIT 2: Rob just emailed me back that he's working on mine. Whoohoo! No idea where in the process he is, but I'm glad activity is occurring!

    He gave me an update on 10/29. I know he is working on it, slowly but surely. No pics to show, though. Honestly, I don’t mind too much that it’s taking a long time, just so long as it does get done, and delivered. I know his work is excellent. And I’ve been burned so many times by people walking with my money that slow is fine!

    Yep, me too! Ultimately, it's too much brown for me. But, I do love KxKs. I have 3 KxKs, believe it or not. I picked them all up used, but they're amazing instruments. These days I don't have much I'd want to sell to pick up a new guitar, though, so my collection is pretty static.
