    Never left my house.
    Everything works fine... been in the case for a few years.. just pulled it out and it checks out ok.
    Could use some pickup height adjustment.
    Here's a review and some pictures.

    I won this guitar free from Guitar Player so let's ignore that mention of a 700.00 street price entirely.

    what's wrong with it:
    they say the trem won't keep it in tune. I have no problem with mine. But I changed the metal saddles out for
    graph tech. It already had two roller string trees.

    You have to wear a strap if you sit down. the shape slides it all over the place, otherwise.

    I would have preferred the trem sit on the body, instead of the guard, but I'm picky about that.
    It's tension adjustable and swings the arm away easily even when set tight.

    Sound clips are in the review.
    no slightly unreasonable offer refused.

    PS:
    I am not making pickguards. My shop furnace went kaput, it's freezing out there.
    We are redoing the bathroom so that gets money first. Which is ok with me, because I am
    really tired of hitting my elbow when I go poopy.

    That's so cool! Looks very VOX-like. Reminds me of the one that Brian Jones played.

    No I didn't think about it yet. I suppose I'd take 200.00 + shipping.
    I don't have a case or bag made for it... but I do have a bag I'd throw in that's at least padded.
    Strat/tele type bag.

    The pups are 14K.. pretty hot. But it's overall strat tones. Despite how hot they are the pos 2 and 4 are still very strat
    like, too. Just big.. (You know, of course that 'strat like' is not like 6K or less strat tones... just a comparison, gotta describe it somehow!)
    those positions are 7.2K ohms.

    It plays nice.. very low action causes the top 5/6 frets to go dead.. but very low action.
    Truss rod works like a charm.
    typical bigsby type trem kind of a pain in the butt to change strings, I'd guess.. my actual bigsby is!

    I think this could be a collector, I dunno? But it plays/sounds good.
