    I have been kinda looking for a new guitar (does it ever stop? lol). I wanted something with a short scale and somewhat of a thin neck. I found this on guitar center used for 249.00, I wanted the red (see through black cherry) or tobacco burst. Had 1 each to pick from.

    I picked this one and then realized it didn't have chrome pickups and that's what it was supposed to have. I was a little worried about it but knew I could always send it back.

    It got here and I was really happy with the neck and the guitar is gorgeous, really really gorgeous. I put new strings on and while I had the strings off I popped the pickups out and found a Dimarzio super distortion in the bridge and a Dimarzio gravity storm in the neck (was unfamiliar with that one). Very pleasant surprise. Still farting around with the sounds but I'm sure very very happy! This kind of stuff doesn't usually happen to me, usually get hosed lol.

    Here she is,

    20190428_143113.jpg 20190428_142102.jpg Had to get a case for this guitar, seemed a shame to just leave it out on a stand and let it get dusty and whatever else. It is a very nice guitar and I saved enough on the price to warrant this Gator case, very nice case too, kinda reminds me of an old Gibson case I had about 20 years ago .
