"A tour is a real testing ground for a guitar," Waters told Epiphone.com. "I know a lot of people who will buy the guitar won't be going on two month tours followed by more two month tours and banging them around like we will. But it was important that it could stand up to what I would put it through. I used the prototype on the record. The Epiphone ProBucker™ pickups are great. I heard them once and that was the end of that (laughs). It took 30 seconds to decide on them. They were perfect. It's a really, really great guitar."
