    The Flatiron should be a substantial upgrade over the Eastman.

    Re: EVO frets after 10 years

    It sure sounds good with some fresh strings. Those Curt Mangans still sounded fine after 6 months, but now I hear what I was missing.

    Re: EVO frets after 10 years

    I'm thinking I'll wait till I can get this one in Michael's hands since he made it. It still plays just fine--no problems. I really don't see the point of silver frets any more.

    Re: Dialing in live sound-monitors, mics etc

    I've given up on mics in loud chatty places. I'd get a K&K pickup installed, a decent preamp, and you'll be able get a lot more volume in your monitors without feedback.
