    Nope, bolt on. But they are known for a tight fit in the pocket.

    I wrote Godin about this.

    Strings bury themselves in the wood, that can't be good. They responded telling me there are little metal tubes that goes in the openings to prevent such a problem. It was added on later models. They're sending me free parts to upgrade my guitar. Guitar is 16 years old and recently bought used. It is a factory second. I'm flabergasted that they offer that kind of service ! I raise my hat to Mr Godin.

    But I'm too impatient to wait for the parts to arrive. So, I applied my own medecine. I filled the holes with string ball ends. Took 10 for each hole. They fit in with just enough friction to keep them in there. I like the looks and I think it'll work. When I receive the parts, I'll re-evaluate which solution is the best, probably Godin's.

    Oh yeah ... I found what made it a factory second. A tiny black depression under the finish.

    Done.

    That is a nice guitar. neck is very comfortable, mild C profile. Fretboard is nice and frets polished easily. Weight is SG like, a little over 6 lbs. Tuners are tiny but very precise and smooth. Seem to have a bone nut.

    Seymour Duncan Custom P90s are kind of ... hot. Pretty hot actually. First time I play P90's so hot. SD website says: Output =
    DCR: 14.6, magnet = Ceramic. I will have to learn to tame them. The bridge doesn't seem to be potted, it squeals like crazy when pushed. Might have to look into that.

    I like it. Very different from my PRS Soapbar and my Epi Special 1 that has Tyson Tone P90's. It is very bright sounding. Neck pup is almost like bridge pup on my Epi. But the neck P90 is about an inch closer to the bridge than on my other two guitars. This explains that.

    Now for the porn ...
