Had this on layaway in the local music store for months on end and since the taxman decided to give me some money back, I went and bought it, as I'll more than likely not be able to afford it in the future. I paid this off on Friday and picked it up on Saturday, and due to being out I've only gotten around to documenting it now. I got it on the cheap as well due to some finish damage on the top of the headstock (very minimal). This thing is top notch. I love it. The neck profile is fantastic, the pickups sound beefy, it's weighty but not too heavy, and the tort pickguard is starting to grow on me (I originally wanted to swap it for black). I even like the stock strings, but I am partial to Fender rounds anyway (I think that's what come on it!). And to follow the rules of no pics, no bass: I can't wait to rock this at my next gig, but I currently have no idea when that's gonna be unfortunately.
