I've voiced my complaints about the 2 OS8s I've gotten (which mostly come down to aesthetic issues and comfort issues like strap pin placement- which is horrible imo, but easily rectified). My experiences is as such: -1st OS8- Really lackluster top, 808x pups didn't really sound good to me, strap pin placement digs into my chest, minor finish/fit issues near control cavity(stain run, and had small gap, wasn't exactly flush, not a big deal imo). Playability was great but the sound was lacking even when I switched to the 57/66 set imo. tuners were stiff but not a huge deal for me. -2nd OS8 LE -horribly lackluster top (it's basically what I would call scrap maple, it's not even worthy of being called a quilted top), strap pin placement still drives me crazy but otherwise no issues except the action being a tad high when I got it and some stiff tuners (not a big deal imo). Lace pickups are excellent imo and sound great with my setup. -I've also got a custom shop 8 that I've been modding and it has some aesthetic issues like knots in the swamp ash (not a big deal imo) and some nicks on the body (filled in but unsightly imo). Top was pretty boring until I threw some dye on it and made it really pop, but now it looks killer and sounds killer once I took out the EMG 81x/85x combo (instrumental sfty3-8 pickups in it now).
