  1. Hi,

    my idea would be to sort the equipment after the years and/or tours it was used. For example there should be a small list which shows the tours like ‘1996 – Golden Heart Tour’ and after you click on that link you can see which guitars, amps, effects, strings… were used during that tour on which song.

    That arrangement would be similiar to the first DS/MK (which guitar on which song) guitar page but also would offer a better detailed overview of the gear that was used. Of course it only makes sense if it doesn’t make too much work!

    Best wishes


  2. In the video the sound the acoustic veosirn seemed to be pretty good. I have no doubt in my mind that a true acoustic or electric sound can be replicated by a computer. Look at all the modeling products on the market. My major concern about this is the look. The narrator asked a question at the start of the video. “Why has there been no change in guitars in over 50 years is it because we are traditionalist?” I guess to some degree I am. I am concerned not so much about the sounds but about the look of the guitar to me a guitar has to first thing sound great, second play great, and then third and I suppose this makes me a little vain but needs to look good. To me a guitar is more than just an instrument it is almost a piece of art. I like the finishes the wood grains the colors and even the pickups gold chrome whatever. So I guess I am all for the computer recreation. But in the end let’s try to maintain some of the beauty on the art end of the instrument.

  3. Hi Ingo,

    Do you plan to update this section? I find it very interesting. You could add information from the National Style O?

    Thank you very much and greetings

  4. Hi Ingo,
    what is the price of used MK signature now and is there still some place where i can find new one (in Europe if possibile) ?

    1. I can’t tell where the prices are, simply because I have hardly seen any being offered in the last months. I guess they are rising fast as everyone who has one seems to be lucky he bought it before it suddenly was discontinued.

      I had one for sale until shortly but it is sold, and I don’t know of any shop that still has one.
