I've had this one for a month or so now, and I think it deserves an NGD. A new/ old stock piece, I grabbed this one after a search for something with an HSS setup. It having a fixed bridge is a plus. The pickups are so-so, and I'll likely swap them for something a little hotter in the bridge and a little vintage-ier in the neck. I was also very pleased to find this one with a flatter radius than what comes on most ESPs these days. It feels great, and the extra-thin U is always a joy to play on. The black pickguard, is in my opinion, very sexy, and I think this looks just different enough from a strat to avoid fully realizinf my DadRock proclivities.
