    2016 with GFS REDactive Gold Modern humbuckers that sound really good. I really don't know why more people don't talk about these pickups. As good as EMG in my opinion.

    2018 with Seymour Duncan mini humbuckers. I swapped out the plastics for black.....just cause

    The one I just reviewed. 2019 with a GFS VEH in the bridge and a Classic '59 in the neck. I am going to swap out the pole screws for gold ones

    2018 with GFS Mean 90's. Sounded great when I filled in for a stoner rock/doom band for a couple of months.

    I'd play along but am out of town. Imagine 2018 root beer. Imagination is probably better than my photo skills with an old phone. I've read rumbles about it not being nice looker OR that the old root beer is better, I don't know, I love it.
    I just didn't want you thinking nobody was playing. You got some nice ones and have had a heck of a week.

    Nice set! Here's the custom AL3200 I grabbed from GC recently for $230. Now sporting a pair of Bareknuckle Warpig pickups and sounding absolutely insane!

    Whoa, those look great. I'll pop my 3200 outta the case tomorrow and throw a pic up. I also owe you a pic of the world's ugliest Tiger Eye AL-2000, of which I am the proud owner. :) It's a good thing I'm not gassing for any more guitars, cuz Kurt has a lefty 3200 that looks pretty dang sharp to me. I'm kind of shocked @tobijohn hasn't purchased one yet. Best value for the money in the entire guitar market. IMO, of course. YMMV

    Mine is one of the first batch of the new factory, so no mcc's here. Got the slightly thinner body and swoosh. Now sporting a couple of SD 59's.

    Dabbler wins! Is that a satin finish or deglossed gloss?

    I'm waiting for him to knock $100 off the current one as not one of the four in stock from a couple of months ago has sold. That's what he did with the very first batch of lefty new style AL-3200s four years ago after none of those had sold for several months. Of course, I was the only sap who paid list for one of those and barely a week after I did, he knocked $100 off the price. IIRC, you and @honyock got yours for $400. In the meantime, that's the only one I've got:

    I wish I could participate in this thread but I STILL don’t have an AL-3200 or an AD-3200.

    Hopefully I will find one or both under the Festivus pole before year end.

    Yep, i got mine, new in da box for 399.99 plus shipping. That's a great deal. I was busy today, so no pics yet. BTW, if i had paid 499.99, I wouldn't be mad, I just got lucky. When he dropped the price, it just made me jump in the 3200 pool faster. That's a lot of goodness for 400 to 500 bones, new. Mine isn't as resonate as I'd imagined it would be, (being a neck thru) but when she's plugged in, yep, sounds good.
