    as of Aug. 15, 2011, Alex has discontinued the “rev one” version of the Professor, in favor of a second generation model being produced for his company in Germany. Look for updated information in Q4/2011 or visit his website (noted in news article, above).

    The first version had some fit/finish issues, wobbly knobs, and so forth due to hand built wood, metal, silk screen, etc. The new version will be “manufactured” and hence should be up to the level of quality most musicians expect these days.
