Hey kiddies! Santa came early for Daddyo this year and I was graced with my LPB Cyclone today. Out of the box I was surprised at how beautiful the LPB is in person. Then I noticed the dreaded "ouch" sting of a sharp fret end. Yes, the vast majority have a sharp edge feel to them. Some definate buffing needed. Almost a bare feeling neck, but I'm sure there is something on there. Die cast tuners, and an affinity level plastic nut. The pickups are close to what came in my Recent Tele HH from GC. Cheesy dime size pots and jack. Still wired nicer then my Amer. Standard Tele. Alpha Switch, Aplha 250k pots. Yep! Thats a swimming pool route down there. Uh oh...what's that! What the...a neck pocket crack... Ah man! A quick call to MF has another on it's way and a call tag looking for this bugger. Regardless, the pickups don't really excite me a whole lot. But I did not have the chance to run her through the big rig. The low E saddle adjustment screws are almost falling out, sketchy QC. The saddles have burs that hurt your hand a bit. All she needs is a good going over with a fine tooth comb. Swap out the electronics for what you want. A good fret buffing session and she would be good to go!
