Anyone else have a S620EXQM?

I have been on a guitar buying frenzy over the last few weeks/months. I currently own an 89 RG760 (my pride and joy that I have had since new), an SZ720, A 2003 Jem ebony fret board w/Edge Pro trem, a Prestige 1570 (been my primary for the last year), a fantastic SDGR bass, a PF5 electric acoustic, and then most recently this S620 which was essentially new.

I don't know what exactly it is about this 620 but I LOVE it. I bought it with the intention of taking it apart and having some pro level custom air brushing done to it but I like the thing so much I don't want to take it apart! I'm afraid I'll never get it back together right.

Funny thing is, I had a 470 earlier this year (02 model) and it was just OK. So just OK that I sold it about 2 months later. It's lightening fast, even more so than any of the others that I have.

I never expected to like it this much!

Re: Anyone else have a S620EXQM?

Got one right here, got a Blem for a steal from a website (gear sites are censored?). Didn't like it too too much at first, and the stock EMG Select pickups are quite literally THE worst sounding stock pups I've ever played. Also, my volume knobs has went from cosmo black to straight chrome colored. I swapped the vol/tone so hopefully the tone knob will now turn chrome again so they'll match.

That being said, I'm LOVING the neck and the tremolo on it. It's nice to have a good strat shape again too, nice and easy to play sitting down while watching TV. I adore that quilted finish, I'm guessing it's a veneer right? Tone is very warm, I'm running a Super Distortion in there right now, but it's going out for something better when I have the green.
