    I'm realling digging the Revolution so far- the sound clarity is excellent and very transparent. I can't quite get the "amplified" sound out of it, but I am pretty sure that is due to my Ahsdown amp, which is geared very much toward rock and has a slightly hi-fi tone to it. I can't really put down cash on an acoustic image or something, but I am very happy overall. The reviews have been pretty accurate, and I don't think another pickup configuration for anwhere near the $100 price tag is going to compete with this. The simple and clean look of it is great too. Feedback is practically non-existant even at high volumes, but i'll try it out in rehearsal this weekend to see how it fares.

    I'm glad your diggin it. We put everything we have into it.

    I can just imagine the lawyers from the Gage camp are getting ready for another volley with that name though...
