I tried one of those Ultra II's out at Guitar Center....that is a sweet player. I love the piezio pick-up sound, especially the way you can blend it with the regular humbuckers. I'm suprised more guitar makers haven't done this. I saw Wishbone Ash about a year ago and their lead guitarist Andy Powell, had a piezio system in his flying V, just a beautiful sound
It was either one of those or a Strat for me on my last buy, never having owned a Strat and wanting a maple neck I went that direction (I have owned a Les Paul in the past). Maybe the next one in a few years

"I once played notes so fast that light emanated from the strings whereupon, I saw God.... who then told me to relax and start playing music."
"You know, once you've had that guitar up so loud on the stage, where you can lean back and volume will stop you from falling backward, that's a hard drug to kick." David Gilmour
