Thanks to everybody that commented on my advice thread. I went ahead and made a trade for this. First semi I've owned in 30 years of playing (badly). Pics first... 20161220_170355 by Zipslack posted Dec 20, 2016 at 5:18 PM 20161220_170402 by Zipslack posted Dec 20, 2016 at 5:18 PM 20161220_170411 by Zipslack posted Dec 20, 2016 at 5:18 PM 20161220_170424 by Zipslack posted Dec 20, 2016 at 5:18 PM 20161220_170434 by Zipslack posted Dec 20, 2016 at 5:18 PM 20161220_170453 by Zipslack posted Dec 20, 2016 at 5:18 PM Still pretty early, but this guitar just feels "right". I don't care for relic finishes, but this isn't your typical "hit it with a sander and beat it with a chain" kind of finish. This thing looks like it's been playing the swamp circuit bars for the past 40 years. It feels like a well-worn and broken-in guitar. I love the knobs! Action was pretty close to where I like it at 0.07" and 0.05" at the 12th fret. Very playable, but I still need to change strings, polish the frets, and oil the board (standard stuff). At this point, I don't see any problem with the nut slots. I'll tweak intonation for the new strings, but it came well set up. I never played it through an amp at the store. I was testing for resonance and feel...anything electrical is no biggie. I was prepared to not like the ceramic pups, but I'll be darned if I can hear a reason to change them. I guess those Agile Alnico V's will have to wait for another project. Pots are smaller size, but with good feel and taper. Switch seems solid. I'm really liking the sounds I'm getting through my SF Twin and my SCX2. It sounds exactly what I would expect a good semi to sound like. There's a very diverse array of sounds in this thing. I find the pickups to have good sensitivity and articulation from clean to mid-level OD. Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed with this guitar. It plays good, sounds good, and feels good. Plus, I don't have to be afraid of scratches and dings!
