Experience with Schoonover Modular Spider?

Hi. I have a fantastic R/S Clinesmith that I recieved two years ago. I got the Fishman Aura setup installed by Todd and I am very happy with the guitar. However, I have since then been wondering how it would sound with a ebony capped maple insert. I do not longer play in a band, and do not use the guitar plugged in. I am considering selling the Aura setup, and need to install a spider with inserts.

I have sent a mail to Todd asking if he can provide me with the spider/inserts, but I am also considering the Schoonover Modular Spider. Does anyone here have any experience with it?

There's been endless discussions here whether the fishman equipped guitars loose volume and tone compared to the all acoustic ones. If in fact my guitar will improve with this, then truly all GAS is gone and I will consider my guitar the best in the whole world!! (NO NEED TO SPEND A FANTASILLION ON A SCHE....)

Jimmy Heffernan DVDs

Hey guys, I just thought I'd post a few comments about some Jimmy Heffernan DVDs I purchased recently. Just before Christmas, I went to and had myself a little shopping spree. I basically picked up all his instructional DVDs - even ones I thought I didn't need. I've been playing for years and so, at first, I didn't think I'd get too much out of Resophonic Guitar from Scratch. However, after reading the caption, I thought I'd give it a whirl. I think I fell victim to what happens to a lot of people when they first start out playing an instrument. You tend to get bored doing the basics (scales, rolls, etc.) and you want to just "play" and in my rush to learn songs, I think I very well glossed over some of the basics. For example, the price of the DVD was worth it for me in the lesson about vibrato alone. Jimmy's technique and description of how to execute it were great.
