    I just got one on order from Kurt @ Rondo...am i gonna love it? (B stock=$149)..it'll be here soon.
    (i have an SX FL with inlaid neck with lines, custom, bridge, custom pups and custom bridge, B-stock= $89!-- not bad at all) ( I have a Squier VM FL, too)

    I do like the Douglas 955T FL 5 b/c of the neck thru, active pups (i have a passive Squier V), FL, bridge....


    I am a little new to FL, and not used to unlined.... so i was wondering if it will be real tough, or will get used to it after awhile?

    thanks

    I've been playing it for almost three months now and I love it. Right out of the box, no set up or mods done and I think it sounds great. The tuners work extremely precise and the action, I think, is fine. I'm playing through a Fender Rumble 100 and I pretty much keep the EQ flat (sometimes I'll use the mid-scoop) and use the two tone knobs and pick-up balance on the douglas. I can get the tight bass thump or a drawn out growl from it. It feels really balanced and comfortable on my shoulder and I'm not worried about the straps pegs, they seem strong enough.

    If you can't tell, I'm extremely pleased with my $200 purchase.

    I hope they had two B-Stocks, or maybe not. I ordered it on the 22nd also. They said it had a small scratch right below the nut.

    One of us might be getting an "A-Stock"
