This here is a very, very nice SX MM 5. Lets see if all those TB'ers that were screamin' for Kurt to build an MM copy will come out and vie for this one! The story is that they were available here in the US for about 5 minutes, during which time, the guy I got this from was able to slip in and buy one before the powers that be shut down the offering. I had a nice Seymour Duncan 3 band MM preamp and Bart MM5 pup that I was going to install but after hearing it in stock form for the first time, I couldn't stand to make the swap for fear of it not sounding as good. Here's the specs Ash body Maple/maple neck w/white binding 21 fret/34" scale Active 3 band pre 3 layer faux tortoise pg ...and it's not that heavy at 9.5 lbs. I'll stack this one up to ALL the OLP's and SUB's you can throw at it. It growls, it barks, it thumps and it can do all that for you for the lowly sum of $350 + shipping.
