    Holy shit. It's so good. So so good. Perfect fretwork, no finish flaws, sounds fucking great, the boost switch is fun. This guitar is on-par with my EBMM Majesty and honestly it feels a little better (that hurts to say, but I will still take my majesty to the grave). I just don't believe it. Anyway, here are some pics: 20200423_142343.jpg

    I had an old LTD M-102 in that colour had some duncan designeds and previous owner messed up the locking nut but was still awesome. This makes me miss that and looks a million times nicer to boot. If only reverse headstock

    It feels u-shaped, and thin, but a little thicker than a wizard. I find it very comfortable. I should mention that it a is also gloss-finished.

    25.5." This I understand.

    648mm. This is like a million miles long.

    Wow that is cool. I had no idea that they made a 24-fret neck-thru one, I'd only seen the 22 fret bolt-on models. I might have to get one of those next since my M-50FR has turned out great.
