I too have played one, twice actually, the queality is amazing and the smoothest nec I have EVER played, the the neck is very smooth, and suprisingly, the pickups, even though they are EMGs have a great clean tone and singing lead without being harsh! hes it does not have an inlay, but they DO have side markers, and personally, i thing inlays would kinda spoil the guitar, again, very comfortable neck, not too slick, but just more like gliding, well, you know how ebony iss, and even thogh its a veneer, the wood DOES sow very well, and it is rather a thick vaneer as so! the trem is very smooth, and stayed in tune perfectly and very high quality. acoustically, the guitar sounds really clear and full, a lot of dimensio, but not so much that in really interferes with the playing of course, the body is pretty consistantly resonant as well, it really DOES play like a 1000 dollars, at least - more than other guitars i have play that have been the same price! and by the way, the custom 24s actually are quite good, but the 25th anniversery 24SE's are actually better than the previous ones! http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/...00000159962854
