    Pulled the trigger on an RT650 - What's it like? Been looking for a 'superstrat' that didn't have a big ol' Floyd, but maintained all the other features I'm looking for; fast neck, humbuckers, and preferably some versatility in the switching department. The RT in question has a push-pull, as I...

    Pics eventually: 1994: Swamp Ash, maple neck, rosewood board, 22 frets, Wilkinson VS100 floating trem, Seymour Duncan SSL 5 (middle and neck), and JB in bridge. Didn't want to post til I knew the model. I'll brag (hopefully right to do it) that I got it for $179... still had the original...

    I've considered ordering a GMW Custom for the longest time, and have now been offered a GMW superstrat in a trade. Have any of you owned, or had experience with them? Everything I read seems to indicate that Lee builds amazing guitars, I've just never had any opinions direct from anyone who...
