    I played the MIM Deluxe Active Jazz (arctic white with the tort PG) and I really liked it.

    Quiet electronics, none of that single coil hum, very nice feel to the neck, not quiet as nice as the amazing broken in feel of my Am Series Precision but still very comfy, and the fit and finish to my eyes seemed to be very good.

    It's a really nice looking and playing guitar.
  3. I played the 1/4 inch slug pickup one and loved it, sweet sound, and it played real good. Sweet fat fingerstyle from the neck, and great slap from both pickups. No hum in the pickups at all, very useful controls. I plan on getting the newer revised one with the Noiseless pickups in Candy Apple Red, and I wanna put a Warmoth Maple neck with black blocks and binding. Now that would be delicious.
  4. MIM or MIA? i have a MIM and love it.
