Just thought I'd share my new guitar. This guitar ticked pretty much every box for me - roasted maple neck, stainless steel frets, trem, bolt on, direct mount pickups, diverse switching options:
Check out that beefy neck next to a Les Paul:
The neck size and the controls are only to minor cons I can find with this guitar. I'm very happy with it. The neck could stand to be a hair thinner, although the large shoulders make up for it a bit (instead of it just being a big fat "C" shape). Also, I find myself accidentally turning the volume down because it's so close to the bridge. This will take some getting used to since I'm used to Les Pauls.
