Sorry for lack of pics.

I received it a few days ago and waited until I could restring and set it up properly. It is a factory second BTW. Ir had a few clear coat scratches on the back, the nut was cut too high/not enough, and the 22nd and 23rd frets weren't fully seated on the bass side under the e and a strings.

After i addressed these issues, it is a great player. Very much the equal of my carvin h2 and warmoth strat (this one has a pro setup)

I love the neck! Coming from a super wizard it is significantly beefier.

The pickups: At first i didn't like them. They seemed harsh at first. Playing with the volume and tone knobs, i was able to eliminate the harshness that ceramic pickups sometimes have.
They are hot too. I don't get it when guys say they too weak. I have a dimarzio norton in my rg520 and the bridge p/u is way hotter. The neck is a bit muddy, but i haven't had a chance to adjust the poles or electronics yet.
Oh yeah, they sound bitchin' with some volume!

I was seriously going to go the carvin or custom build route before i came across one of these in a local GC.
I may change the 5 way to a 4pole 5 way and replace the nut for something better. That's all.

Can you tell i love this guitar?

Factory seconds can be had for 500 bucks or so. A definite steal!
