OK it came last Wednesday. Funny thing about the delivery though, I got an email from UPS on Monday saying they had received my request for a return label, a request I never sent. Tuesday a guitar arrives, which is funny, because the projected delivery date was Wednesday. I open the box and inside is a SX Callisto STD BK. Sigh, so I put it back in the box, print out the return label and send it back. On Wednesday, as projected, this arrived: It came with typical SX strings, but I put the Black Diamonds on it almost immediately. Setup was pretty good out the box. The pups are not hot at all, they are middling in terms of output. This suits me just fine as I don't do metal or anything much heavier than blues. For me, it's a pretty good value guitar. And it has a unique spot with its cousins.
