    If they were FL they’d be painful to part with. I am keeping my Synapse FL but it’s just not the same magic.

    You’ve plainly misunderstood nhb’s excellent explanation. It’s just further evidence that you’ll be better off doing your EQ by ear rather than chasing after technical spec’s. I remind you...

    While tort is my usual fave, the idea of the white body with a black neck and head plus a black PG is irresistible. Get a black strap to go along with the idea or even a black and white strap.
