Status Retro-active- anyone tried one- or even seen one?

    P and J -styled using their graphite replacement necks, and bypassable active circuits.

    nice idea- I'd be interested in the P model- if it wasn't so ugly (horrible pickguard- and the J pickguard's no stunner either), and it had 21 frets (strange that they stuck with 20).

    I've never seen one in a shop, and they don't list a price anywhere- anyone tried one?

    I tried the PJ.
    Excellent neck and comfort as usual.
    Very nice P sound, J is more like a regular Status HyperActive.
    It sounds nowhere like a Fender though.
    Modern sound with classic looks.
