    Oh my god, you guys are so close to the real deal! Do any of you guys have a pedal like the Clinch EP-Pre or Xotic EP Booster? I think that Echoplex preamp is the final ingredient you guys need. Unbelievable stuff i'm hearing!

    That is pretty impressive! Are you going to sell those? Any idea how much will they go for?
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    I'm selling the Model A as I build them so I can control the business pace and not fall behind. it also lets you see exactly what you'll get and allows you to chose the grain pattern you like best. I've got one left for a while. The next lot will probably be 2 months before they're available.

    check the spec page for all the details. the pickup is a DSD for a reason. there is also some special electronics that changes the resonant frequency and the tone knob adjusts that point. its very cool. on 10 its a super hot pup, roll it back and it morphs into a PAF style tone without losing the highs. I've been working on this a long time.

    as far as the amp goes, yes, I'm going to start offering those too. i"m working pricing out but they'll be in the $2k ballpark with the best trannies. I have some flexibility to work on your budget as needed by adjusting where i get the trannies from, etc. PM me if interested.

    go to the plexitonesummit page and go to the equipment tab to read about what the other guitars pickups are.

    cheers guys, glad you're digging it. sort of thought you would

    PM me if interested.

    Great tone! Love the clip...saved it and put it on my ipod lol.

    Anyone ever wonder what it would be like if we put Ed in a room with this amp and told him to play away....

    Would love to hear him on this setup again. But I love his new era tone....ahh im just thinking out loud.

    How did you record that sound clip? A pro mic and set up, computer or phone?

    thx guys.

    Audix i5 (similar to SM57), to M Audio basic preamp, to Garage Band on a Mac. No fancy mixers. Add a little reverb in GB and that's it.

    The RWB Franky from your VH.1 Plexi Summit was the best on both amps. Am I correct in assuming that the Franky had the EVH Frankenstein Humbucker? If so, I'm gonna have to get it for my Strat.
