It has the neck feel of my Thumb but slightly wider and it's very comfortable. The string spacing is tighter than I'm used to but it makes for a wicked fast fretboard. The clown that owned it before me swapped the MEC pickup for an EMG and the solder joints look like a four year old did them One MEC preamp has been removed and one remains. The only knobs that do anything are volume and treble. It sounds incredible but I think I'm gonna' install the EMG 3-band preamp that goes with the pickup. I'll do the 18v mod if possible. Even though it's been butchered electronically, I still think it's nicer to play than my Thumb and it's my first five string. I'm diggin' it!
