    The PS40 is only $300?

    Holy .... that's tempting. Probably the cheapest I've ever seen a standard Iceman go for.

    Besides the PS sigs, nothing interests me. :( Although it's good to see the Xiphos back. Can't wait to see his PRS video.

    Are the cheaper sigs made in Indonesia or china?

    I'm digging the PS40 and JEM jr but no sure I'd jump on one MIC???

    The fireman sigs are MIC right

    I was expecting the QM S7 models that landed the US in 2014 (bummer...), but the new basses got me excited

    The Gibraltar II is a good and solid bridge that feels great. Plus it will never have the problem of breaking string saddles or overwound locking screws.

    I'm much more a trem guy, but I actually like the Gibraltar. I even like the first one because you have the option to top-load some or all of the strings if you want.

    At around 5:25. And I must admit, it is pretty cool, I just worry about the hit or miss results of the Iron Labels.

    I'm not real familiar with basses, but I know that they can struggle with dead spots. That type of top horn, which stabilizes a long length of the neck, might be an effort to eliminate those dead spots. It might look odd, but if it works, it works.
