Actually it is a month old now, but I replaced the hot Ceramic pickups with some vintage output Alnico IIs from GM. It has a thin flat Ibanez neck with dimensions very close to the Wizard I. Though I am no speed demon I kind of like the way it feels. I could pas for new, the only blemish is some discoloration on the pickguard, besides that there is not a nick or scuff on it. It is an Korean made ASX42, they replaced the AXS32 and were only made in 2006, the difference being string through vs stop bar tailpiece and fret board inlays. It is an SG style guitar with an slight retro-industrial vibe. I hesitate to call it rare, uncommon would be a better descriptor, I was built as an SG style shredder, now with the new pickups it is full bodied warm blues rocker.
