    better a late response than none, right?

    I have the amber/alder version with a maple/maple neck. Can't say enough good things about it. I replaced the stock bridge with a Badass V BUT there really isn't a good reason to replace the stock does it's job just fine. I did it more for the look and feel.

    The SCN pickups and 18 volt preamp are great. The B string is finally up to par. Took Fender long enough to get that B string decent let me tell you. (I base this remark on previously owning a 2002 version that had a horrible B string.)
