    That is a nice guitar. neck is very comfortable, mild C profile. Fretboard is nice and frets polished easily. Weight is SG like, a little over 6 lbs. Tuners are tiny but very precise and smooth. Seem to have a bone nut.

    Seymour Duncan Custom P90s are kind of ... hot. Pretty hot actually. First time I play P90's so hot. SD website says: Output =
    DCR: 14.6, magnet = Ceramic. I will have to learn to tame them. The bridge doesn't seem to be potted, it squeals like crazy when pushed. Might have to look into that.

    I like it. Very different from my PRS Soapbar and my Epi Special 1 that has Tyson Tone P90's. It is very bright sounding. Neck pup is almost like bridge pup on my Epi. But the neck P90 is about an inch closer to the bridge than on my other two guitars. This explains that.

    Now for the beauty shots.

    The grain is gorgeous. The string-through design is... different.

    Wow, the way they did that - if you can't get that action low enough, something is very wrong.

    Thanks.

    I'll switch the tone pot from audio taper 500k to linear 250K. That thing is really bright and with audio taper, the only usable EQ section is between 2 and 3 on the knob. It'd be fun to get more modulation.
