Are the mini hums on these quite trebly like the ET275 is meant to be? Not sure what colour to go for yet tho, was looking at white but I don't think the white comes with the mini humbuckers!
Also if you guys have any pics of your own wilshire or have anythin to add then please post.

I owned an Epi ET278 for a while (the non-trem version of the ET275). I don't remember that as being particularly bright sounding. If I was to compare it to a Fender type sound I would say it was closer to a humbucker equipped Tele Deluxe rather than a regular Tele or Strat.

I just bought a Brand New worn black 66 for 297.00 at a local shop in Trenton & I love it although the neck is thinner than I'm used to - Iknew what I was getting intoas I'd been checking them out for awhile. I was thinking of going for the MIC full humbucker model in Green or Blue But I Love the nsound of Mini Hums so much that I'd rather have the minis than going coil split. When you look at the Willy in certain light it looks kind of chocolate - not a real flat black, it's worn & I really dig the color not to mention the sound. I play thru a Palomino 15 watt & have a Jetter Red Shift OD, Keeley Katana clean boost, 535Q wah, MXR Carbon Copy delay, EH Small Clone & a Guyatone VT3 Trem & Dano EQ. Mostly just the Keeley OD, Jetter & Delay are used. When I tested the Wilshire, I played it thru a H.W.Vox 15 TV & a Fender 15watt Blues amp. My Palomino sounds great. Although mine was made in VietNam - I missed the USA made one by about two weeks at GC. GO FOR THE WILSHIRE MINI HUMS!
