I actually got mine used at a deal of the century price that I couldn't pass up, even as a broke kid. Haha.Great info everyone! The pots issue kind of concerns me. $3000 for a guitar, it better be perfect! And come with an ass wiper! LOL
I play 7s and 8s that have wider necks. So when I refer to thickness, I mean depth. The highest frets (past say, the 15th fret) where the heel flattens out and the neck becomes ever so slightly wider was perfectly comfortable. But otherwise, the neck was too thick. The roundness of the profile was fine, but it was just too thick for me personally.Emperor Guillotine, when you say the neck is "thick", what exactly are you saying? Are we talking width & depth of the neck? Or just width?
I'm wondering about the pickups, though. On one of Shawn's REH vids, he said that he didn't like the high gain you get with active pickups and that he preferred weaker ones that pick up more of the natural wood sound of the guitar. IIRC. Maybe just a preference issue?
