So, the other thread sorta got derailed. Anyways, I have a used Tyler coming and was wondering a few things for those of you who have them Studio Elite model First of all, it "looks" like a regualr strat setup as per where the knobs are. Normal volume knobs on strats get in my way and I have to move take out a tone and move the volum down to second spot, no biggie if I have to on this, but just curious if it is pretty much the same placement as a regaulr strat? Secondly, mamyo wood. Tell me? Compare to alder? I love alder, never have bonded with any ash guitar, so what the heck is mamyo? Thanks for the help or comments.
