Ah. Well, I can't say much for certain. Here's how I made my deduction:
I had played on a friends 5Mfor a while, and when I ordered, I saw a 5M
with Mr. Cole's name on it. Figured it was a little brighter, maybe cut
through more, but when I got it, it didn't sound any different than the
regular 5M I'd b been playing on. Now, I've only had it four 5
months...so maybe I've yet to unlock all of it's true potential. ^_^
