I dunno if this is old news but youtube just suggested this to me. I couldn't quite make it through the demo. But it looks cool enough.

This is old news. Unfortunately the search function is still borked so finding the thread is difficult. One question remains in my mind; why the hell was the single-pickup version more expensive than the non-authentic dual pickup version?

You kind of answered your own question, because more people want ones that look like vintage ones. They don't cost more to make.

It's like the Fender amps.

Or Gretsch guitars. They could make Electromatics that look like guitars from the 50s or 60s, but they don't.

When you press the accelerator past halfway it doesn’t actually go any faster, but the engine noise distorts

I have observed that people into swingers can’t be too particular.
