    I can't find any reviews here for this, but I could have missed it because the search function isn't working properly.

    So does anyone have one? I have the EC black metal 6 string and I love it. I never use a neck pickup anyway. It seems to be a solid guitar.

    It neck dives like crazy. I think I would have kept mine if it were not for that. It was really a great guitar but it was painful dealing with that, even in a seated position.

    I can't speak to the Viper obviously but the EC is exactly like a 1000 series as far as I can tell.

    ^Good. I thought about scooping up the EC and the Viper. Would do the other, but I can't stand tremolos.

    I want the whole set, but if get the one with the Floyd it'll be last. I hate tremolos as well.

    By the way, can you speak to the difference between the Black Winter and the Blackened Black Winter? What is the difference between them?

    I have regular black winter in an SG so yeah. They sound pretty close. The blackened version is matte finished with a black logo. It has two rows of hex screws instead of slugs and fillister screws. It might be a tiny bit tighter and relaxed in the midrange.
