So I received this a few days back. Wanted to spend some time with it before putting out a ngd. The guitar came perfectly setup with 9-42s in drop C, it's a tad too light for my liking but I stuck with it to see how it would play out since it's setup real nice. No truss adjustments needed. The bridge is a hip shot type and is really comfortable. No noticeable difference between it and a hip shot bridge. Really comfortable to rest the hand on the low profile. The pickups are pretty huge sounding, not overly bright. Works well for its purpose. But of course you can't compare them to premium ones. But they get the job done, I reckon I won't be replacing them. Tone knob in its normal position is bypassed so it's a tad brighter than the max setting if you pulled it up. At The pulled up position it acts as a normal tone control. Frets are dressed well, no sharp ends, neck pocket is tight. It's just really playable and a joy to play, the carves are really nice too. The matt white finish is brilliant, no flaws whatsoever but you will smudge it if you have dirty hands. Pardon the phone photos, photography is not my strong suite. And all 3.
