    I like it. I'd prefer it to have 2 pickups (either a neck HB or SC) and a tone knob, but as it is, I'd still rock the shit out of it.

    Beautiful wood. Terrible body shape. Hate the trem. Love the neck.

    I've just never liked alder guitars with a maple cap sonically.

    Prages just likes it for the Floyd.


    I think it looks like a pile of throw-up.

    I am all for quilted tops, even on an LP, it would be ok. But to have whole helluva lot of it in one place is kind of overdoing it, cha think ?

    Actually, my biggest beef with it is the slanted pickup.

    Straighten up the bridge pickup, add a neck pickup and a tone control, and I'm all over it.

    Adding the neck pickup would even eliminate that big expanse of quilty stuff between the bridge pickup and the fretboard. :weebz:
