    I own one and the body isn't glued in the middle anyway. Body is multiple pieces glued wherever they needed, not two pieces glued in the middle.

    I actually wish he'd offer a non-locking trem option, but I'm picky. (Just don't really like Floyds tbh.)

    If he does that finish on a G series I can skip the E-II Eclipse that has been delayed forever

    You could block it to dive only, if you wanted that.

    You don't need to be a ghoul to dig that man - Neon colours are officially metal, and this orange is fucking boss. Dayglo without being high viz. Chefs kiss.gif

    Can anyone tell me what the neck profile on solar's is like? Closest comparison to another neck helps best for me. Since I can't try one state side before buying I'm curious what it compares to.

    Very similar to chunkier LTD necks (most LTD necks are like that).
