It's a 1000 Floyd, not a Special. And with an upgraded big block no less. I own a lot of really nice guitars and the Jensen I own has risen to the top of the pile. It looks fucking killer, sounds savage and it plays and feels absolutely effortless. My only abject criticisms on it is that it's a little on the heavy side at 9.3 pounds, and that the ultra thin open pore finish is a little fragile. The Duncan Solar pickups sound almost exactly the same as a Duncan Custom 5/59 set. If you know what those pickups sound like, you'll have a good idea of what the Solars sound like too. The majority of people who own these guitars prefer to keep them in. The E-type bodies that the Solars have are about the same size as a Gibson's. But the Solar E bodies are a lot more ergonomic. They have a heavily sculpted access heel and an arm bevel. The neck profiles on the Solar guitars are pretty thin but not overly so. The one on my Jensen is about the same thickness as the neck on my Jackson DK2M (according to my calipers) but it's C shaped instead of D shaped.
