The aluminum guards are great for hum rejection, magical almost. If you can make the aesthetics work, they're a handy thing.

My happiness never wore off and it's still a weird surprising and unexpected joy every time I play the damn thing.

I'm keeping mine totally stock... can't see why I'd change anything about it. The gold pickguard was/is part of the allure of the guitar in the first place... plus it matches my white-ish P-Bass. I have a gold pickguard on that ass too.

And WOW does it stay in tune well. Again... better than my Gibson.

After a few weeks, still happy here. Neck adjusted to altitude/humidity just fine, it stays in tune acceptably well (not as well as my Jaguar, which laughs at me every time I hit the tuner button on the guitar synth to double check), and I may be able to live with the pickguard.

If only I put stupid stickers on it like I was 12.

Ughhh you guys are making me GAS for one bad, just can't decide if I would rather hold onto the $400 to put towards my JM Jag.

Hate to say it, on decent budget instruments (and this is just a flat out decent instrument), you jump before they go away or the specs change or something's wrecked.

Good guitar in the hand > a pile of surf green Jags (as much as I want one too)

There's apparently some rumor flying around that these are discontinued already. Hmm.

Matching headstock would have made the color choice AOK.

The guitar is perfect.

White = Best color choice

Shit. I really want one fo those. Even more than the "new series" this summer. BEcause it has a usable bridge. NOt the best bridge, but a useable one.
