    6118, amazing beast! So much a different guitar than the Setzer. 57889448419__0A99A90C-76C5-45DA-8D7D-0F4240486356.JPG

    Beautiful pair. Congrats.
    When did Annie’s lose the mud Switch? Do they all have tone pots these days?

    For some reason I’ve having deja vu.

    Congratulations! My local shop has one and it plays awesome. It’s my favorite color of the current 6118 line. Like a fine classy hot rod. I already dreamed if I had one in that color, I’d find a good pin stripe artist to do some lines with dark and light blue like this picture.

    Tone pot is nice. Nice alternative to the switch.

    Congrats, beautiful addition and great pair!

    I have lost track of current model names/features, but they initially lost the mud switches at the advent of the Players Edition Series I think. 2016 models. And not all have lost it, I think they now call the other version "Vintage Select"? But it does not have H.F. Filtertrons. My Anni from 2015 was the last traditionally spec'd model I believe. I remember I wrote a post lamenting the fact that they were not keeping one available in that configuration.

    Congrats! And yes, players editions have tone knobs, and switches are on some vintage select.

    Noticed that the PUPS are so much more soothing than on the Setzer (TV Classics). The new appointments to this model are super amazing!
