Probably not. I also purchased it used like 2 years ago so I wasn't the original owner. Just ended up with a really helpful guy answering the phone when I called. He had to get the parts directly from the factory and he said that generally you had to purchase the screws as a set. All the times I had tried getting a hold of them in the past fell on deaf ears; I was quite shocked that everything went so smoothly. Okay, maybe not a baseball bat, but it is a bit thicker than my Schecter which others generally regard as a baseball bat. It's thick enough that it makes reaching my thumb over a little bit more awkward. The paint is my biggest problem overall though. I figure I'll just order a new neck that way I can get it spec'd exactly the way I want. I'll probably get the upper frets scalloped and get offset inlays to make it feel worth the hassle.
