I agree about the lower horn, but you don't really notice it when it's on its side at least. The blue quilted finish was the best one, but I also really like the black Moi dix Mois guitar that he never uses anymore, unfortunately. All of them look cool in their own right (I even like the "Bronze" finish, except that it doesn't really match any of his outfits), but the Transparent Blue and the Solid Black are the best ones IMO. I don't think the neck pickup would really sound different, would it? I mean, they're both humbuckers. I think they'll both deliver about the same, big, loud, distorted sound. And didn't Közi recently get a new model guitar from ESP?? Why would he be gone now? That's sad. Maybe he's fallen so much that they don't think he's bringing in enough exposure.
