My new SX Hawk is out of the box and checking out the new digs. It came with a gig bag but it has hardly no padding and it will be in my next Goodwill donation. When I opened the box to my surprise it was in tune except the 3rd (G) string, There are no flaws anywhere that I can find the fit and finish would be fine on a $750 guitar I'm very impressed. It weighed in at 8.3 lbs with nylon strap and a Snark tuner attached and it is very playable straight out of the box. I may have just cot lucky but this guitar is great I had planed on swapping the neck off of the Squire but after playing this SX the neck on it feels great and it would not benefit the guitar in the least to swap out the neck. The string height is spot on at the 12th fret bass 1.75 treble 1.25 and the pups sound as good as the Destiny ones that are in the Iyv so no need to change them unless I buy upgrades for it and the radius at the bridge is dead on 12. The frets are in great shape however the edges could use the slightest amount of file work they're not really sharp but you can feel them a bit. The nut is cut really well and I will not replace it unless I have a problem. I have my Blue Strat and I want to thank @Acidhouse for pointing me in this guitar's direction it's every bit as great as that MIM Strat I had so many years ago. I'll be back I'm going to play thie thing for awhile.
