    Sounds very cool Jack. Have you tried or heard anything about their les paul copies? Also, who is carrying these guitars? How would I purchase one?

    Thanks.

    Someone asked me to compare the AS200 to the Albatross...

    They are very different. I would say that the AS 200 gets more of that dark, thunky, plywood tone. You can turn the tone control down and get a methenyesque tone out of it. OTOH, the AS200 sounds a bit shrill for overdriven tones unless you're going for that ratty scofield tone. The Albatross has a much cleaner overall tone and has a better funk tone than the as 200 but doesn't have the plywood thunk to it. Gets a great overdriven tone and is more versatile. It's also a lot lighter. I'd probably play an AS200 if it were 8lbs but 9.5-10.5lbs is heavier than I want to play for 4 hours.
