    New Love for the AL SSS

    I haven't picked it up in about 3 weeks because I have been playing my Axes. I decided to pull it out today after watching some King's X videos and realizing that Ty was using that Strat Elite on the first 4 records. Man, was I pleasantly surprised! All the heaviness with the addes single coil magic. It's funny how quickly we get attached to a guitar and then forget how the others sound. I've always loved Strats but the hum just absolutely kills me. The Ernie Ball silent system is the best thing since sliced bread.

    Glad to hear it! It is a KILLING MACHINE. Beware of the mighty SSS AL.

    Played mine in services today. I tend to match the guitar to the sounds I need every week. Last week, Axis, this week Al, next week probably Axis (or maybe the Sublhouette).

    Lol. Believe me, I'm not trying to shill for myself. As I said, I have pretty severe OCD and after playing it the other day, I immediately went to eBay looking for another one. Makes no sense, by I have major impulse issues. I figured I would be better off making my house payment instead of buying another guitar (I bought 5 EBMM's this month already!). I'm an impulsive collector and if I buy something I like, I want every version of it, so an MM90 and HH AL, even though I already have them as Axes already. The only way to relieve my anxiety is to divest myself from it, which in this case means, stick with my Axes and get rid of the AL before I have 9 guitars. Sorry for the confusion.

    Trust me, the MM90 AL sounds NOTHING like the Super Sport MM90 axe. Different beat altogether.

    Cannot beat a MM90 AL, ever, not in a million years.

    I'm sure it sounds great, but it's become a matter of money now. Even I think $6000 in less than a month is a bit much.

    Oh I LOVE the SSS too, for sure! Spud, the MM90 AL sounds different with a maple board too, way spankier. Sometimes I prefer the rosewood board, sometimes rosewood.
