Yeah that didnt help. I THINK you're telling me that the XE's no longer have a removable shell... is that correct? Which means if the shells aren't removable any longer then I cant put my old shell on an XE.... right?
Edit: Ok I found a pic that answers my question. So the feedneck now screws into the ****ty plastic shell instead of the actual metal body like the original ions. Kinda sounds like theyre much flimsier than the old ions, at least as far as the feedneck goes. Any thoughts? Convert or not?
