Regular readers of this Forum (or at least Caleb, who has patiently answered my questions) know(s) that I'm a BIG fan of Anthem and that I've been asking questions about the Lyric even before I obtained one.

GOT IT. It's installed in one of the best "factory" guitars ever produced: A Santa Cruz OM.

So, NOW I have new questions (within the framework of a high customer satisfaction quotient).

1. The Santa Cruz has a smaller bridgeplate than the guitar used to model the Lyric on the web site. In order to avoid having the Lyric crowd up against the string balls(!), we had to place it such that the ring in the center of the Lyric is ever so slightly off the bridgeplate (toward the sound hole). I think that the ring is simply the adhesive or attachment area. So, no problem....right????

2. Despite the noise canceling technology, I still get a slight "wolf tone" at the low F# when the guitar is plugged in. This is easily dealt with by minor adjustments on my *L.R. Baggs Venue Pre-Amp.* But, could you supply some more info on the frequencies that are involved in the noise cancellation?

3. The Lyric sounds a little "hotter" than the Anthem (louder with the same amount of gain). True? Or, is the OO sized guitar containing my Anthem just a quieter box?

Cheers,

Brent
