Really sexy looking guitar
Bought this guitar at local store. They didn't had it immediately available so I had to wait 4 months for it. I had mixed feelings when I first plugged it in. First thing that had to go were EMG active pickups. I just really didn't like them at all. A replaced them with set of Gibson Burstbuckers 1 and 2 (I know Fender guitar with Gibson pickups? Come on!) and I found out they fit this guitar perfectly! I had instantly that full mahagony guitar sound and with further mods (I added Fender S-1 volume pot with their Super Switch) I had really versatile guitar that can sound both really really metal and on the other hand put out some beautiful blues tones. So I decided to keep it at least for a while.
