Hello, the guitar arrived a couple days ago and I had chance to play for hours to understand its pros and cons. Pros: -27 inch scale with 9s (drop C#), or baritone scales with light strings in general, is clearly a win for me. The tone is crystal clear and does not get flubby. I prefer thinner strings over thicker strings if I can get away with it. -Construction wise this is the most sturdy bolt on guitar I have ever played. Frets are spotless and it plays like a solid MIJ ESP guitar. -47mm body thickness seems to make the body resonate deeper. -The previous owner has installed Nazgul/Sentient and they are awesome. I think I prefer Nazgul over Black Winter but Omega is still my favourite pickup. Also the previous owner has wired them to have JP6 wiring and you get that awesome sparkly single coil-ish tone in the middle position Cons: -27 inch scale does make it harder to play especially above 12-14th frets for soloing. Stretches can be challenging especially if you are trying to pull off Dimebag style pinky workout licks and fast runs. -It is heavy. -The bodyshape is awesome but my taste may change; I actually wanted this model so bad since when I was in highschool but you never know. -The rightside horn gets in the way when you are playing above 15th fret. This is actually quite annoying. -Sentient can sound a bit sterile but it is not really a big deal for me. -Probably won't be able to sell it in the future because it is such a niche guitar. Oh well I will keep it forever.
