S 520EX BBK

What do you guys think of this guitar?
http://www.serlui.nl/frankfurt02/fot...bas520bbbk.jpg

I bought it here in Holland a couple of weeks ago, I really digged the finish and the sound it had.
I have frankly never seen a guitar that had this kind of Leather-look

By the way when I'm playing it I particularly like the Wizard Neck that is both hellish fast but at the same time gives a secure feel!
I experience the Wizard Neck as by far better playing than the Wizard II Neck I've got on my RG470!

Call me an ignorant, but I don't feel a big difference between the Wizard II on my S470, and the Wizard on my S 540, but that's another story

Yeah, that's one sweet axe. I played that one in a guitar store, and the finish is very nice. The Edge trem feels good (the only time I played an S with an Edge so far) and the Stock PUs are ok (see the Discussion about these somewhere on these forums).

Congrats!

i did check out this guitar to see if it's any match against my S540. it's pretty good, pity the inlay though the finish will flake off like the one in my dealer's, it's exposed to sunlight for quite a bit. how ignorant can dealers be...

you don't need sunlight to see this baby peel off, just constant temperature change will do! glueing it back is a problem...
