Anyone got as S920e

Hi
I'm thinking of buying one of these and there seems to be very little on the web about them. I saw one youtube review a few months ago and can't find it know (it was a german I think?!).
But nothing else. There is one place here in the uk with stock but its miles away so I will have to buy unseen. My concern is with the emgs (never having had a guitar with actives before) and with the lack of tone pot (even though I probably don't use the tonme pot that much anyhow!) and generally how the guitar is put together.
So has anyone got one, or tried one even? How does it sound/look/play?
Thanks

Looks great. Very sleek and metal.
Plays great. Thin neck, big frets, low action.
Sounds alright. Not an EMG fan unless it's an 85 in the bridge and an 81 in the neck. Yes, I said that right. I like them reversed.

Re: Anyone got as S920e

I love the looks, looks classy to me like a modern Les Paul Custom without all the blingy gold
I think if it was a regular pick up/control set up then I'd be on it straight away and I usually don't like black guitars. There's just too many 'not sures' about it for me....not sure about the EMGs , not sure about the lack of tone control, not sure about the matt neck finish (I know loads of people sand down their gloss necks, but I quite like glossy necks). So in general ....not sure!!
