I believe this guitar is discontinued, I got mine for 400 from my brother June last year. Features Comes with a 3-way switch, volume and tone knob. I'm not sure if it ships with any other pickups than EMG 81/85 but you can get the Floyd Rose version of it. I don't have that, though. -Mahogany body -25.5" scale -See-through black finish -Earvana nut -Tune-o-matic bridge -Grover tuners -3-piece maple neck -Quilted maple top -Rosewood fingerboard -Made in Korea Sound It's a lovable guitar for sure. It has great tone and provides a generally great experience when playing it. The EMGs are very heavy and provide excellent distortion (I currently have my gain on 4!) and great cleans. Action, Fit & Finish There are varieties, mine came with a natural wood binding. I'd much rather have the white binding but it's something very trivial for a great guitar like this. It features a see-through black finish that actually sometimes turns blue/purple/green depending on light given, I absolutely love this! As mentioned, I got it secondhand and I can't comment on factory setting. Reliability I don't know how many times I've hit this guitar hard into my desk but there hasn't been a single scratch. It's a very wellbuilt guitar. Overall Rating Getting it for 400 was a pure steal! It's undoubtedly one of the best guitars I have ever played on. Don't hesitate buying this beast! It's just a bloody shame it comes with active pickups.
