Re: jem7bsb

I love the BSB. I have one, it's very very cool

A few things though:
- Playing it instantly starts rubbing the finish of the neck
- Easy to dent, finish wears off
- A bright guitar, probably because it's unfinished, so watch out with the evo's, it would be better off with paf-pro's, breed, but basically the evo's are really too bright and harsh in it

However, i've torched mine more (muhahahaha), changed the pickups, played it and love it.

If you are a colelctor, then cool keep it in the case, there's very few of these that are mint due to their nature

If you are a collector/player, avoid, as if you play it, it'll decrease in value as the finish will wear

If you are a player, and want a guitar that looks cool even with worn finish, nicks, dents, scrapes et all, then get it. THese things to me just look cooler and cooler the more worn they get, and you can re dye them too

I had one and sold it bunyok23. I like her but the pickups and not wanting to bang her up got to me.

Re: jem7bsb

Agreed on the pickups, evolutions really do not suit this guitar one bit. Fred / mo Joe and A breed or Air Norton in the neck are however awesome. I also replaced the single with a blue velvet.

I like thwe banged up vibe, the more damage it gets, the more personality it obtains

Now it rocks
