    Is that a set neck?

    Nice! I have a similar one and love the neck profile.

    If it still has the P100, that would be the first thing I'd swap.

    Nice
    I recently picked up one of these as well. A bit off topic but does anyone know if these use a veneer on the top as all the ones I've seen look like 1 piece bodies which seems unlikely?

    If it's Epi, it's a veneer.

    I owned one back in 2006 and it was a really nice guitar that felt like a Gibson Junior.My only issue with it was that I couldn't set the pickup close enough to the strings to get a good meaty tone that one would expect from a Junior.If I set the bridge too low then the strings would buzz at the frets.It sounded thin and was on par with a vintage style Strat bridge pickup in terms of output because the strings were still too far from the pole pieces no matter how I set it which included raising the pole pieces.I ended up selling it as a result...too bad because it was a well made and great looking Junior.Do you have the same issue or are you able to get a good ballsy tone out of it?

    The factory P100 that it came with was garbage. I wound up swapping the pick up out for a GFS dogear that sounds way better. Also put in new pots and tailpiece. The P100 was far too subdued.
