I tend to only have time to practice late at night, which is challenging with a baby in the house. I started looking for a mute that would work on my Nechville, which has a radius neck. A quick google search brought me to Mike's page, where I found that he makes a specific radius model (demo'ed by Tom Nechville, no less).
I ordered the mute late Saturday night, and received an email from Mike on Sunday morning. I received the mute on Wednesday, and it works just as advertised. I am able to play with picks at full strength, and the tone is quite pleasant. My wife is a big fan!
