I bought my Blacktop Strat a few years ago when they were a fairly new item. Mine is sonic blue, which is gorgeous (as opposed to the black shown here). Originally it was set up absolutely horrendously, but since I have had it set up properly. To me the neck feels a bit dead and the pickups are slightly too dark and muddy for my tastes. However, I think it sounds fantastic and beefy when tuned a whole step down.
This is my favourite guitar that I have ever played or owned. Again I want another one. Upgraded this with an Original Floyd Rose and a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge with a Dimarzio Air Norton in the neck. White Scratch Plate to make it a little classier. The perfect guitar for me! The one I would grab in a fire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJ1e1kBKkJ0
