Nice set of axes. I should do a similar video of the boat load of Phoenixes I have!

Mike -

Glad you have this great line up;

It's good to know they are in the hands of someone who will use and appreciate them for their real value as player guitars - not just collectibles;

Great video and that guitar is spot on with tone; your amp sounds pretty good as well.

Again - great job.

I've put up a couple more videos for your viewing pleasure. Firstly, here's my youtube channel, feel free to sign up:

http://www.youtube.com/user/mjm33mjm?feature=mhsn

Here is a clip of the Flying Wedge that I was talked into selling to Mortarman at EF2012:

Here is the X910 Rick Derringer Video, 'nuff said:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2t7eszO-OuM

And my latest offering, a Phoenix clip. I try to offer a quick condensed history of the line, but some tasteful riffs through my clean X130na make it tolerable!

Have a request for a Maple Pro vid, so that will be my next endeavor. That makes ten Electra Videos from me, whew! Enjoy and feel free to ask questions and leave comments, Mike.

Well it took three days to upload it (what up with Youtube lately?), but I finally posted the vid for my 2267 MaplePro:

Tell me what you think, and keep the hits coming! Mike.

Nice, bro.... Nice!! At the risk of bring banned, it seems to lack bite in the bottom end; it's a little muddy?? But I suppose all of the tone controls - amp and guitar - were set at no gain/no loss??

The camera Mic has definite shortcomings, but is convenient... also, listening to it on my 2cm laptop speakers leaves me underwealmed. Excuses aside, I have a tin ear after decades of Boogie bliss, so I tend to set the amp pretty bright, and tuning down about a step doesn't help the strings. I'm a caveman I guess.

You have another follower now Mike. Keep up the good work!

Really dig the demos, all of them, especially the 2336 now in Arthur's clutches.

I like it too! I like the "subdued" maple - very pretty.
When in doubt turn it up. My ears are becoming very similar to bricks - but I have no bottom end issues with my X410 or 2281. I find the tone controls on both to be pretty responsive - I'm going to say camera mic squishes the sound.
