"Pimp my axe" :D
There's clearly some really cool stuff that can be had by just ordering standard bird's eye maple.

it sounds pretty good, though I'm kind of on the fence about the pickups. They are pretty quiet - actually they are VERY quiet for the most part but the neck gets a little noisy with a lot of gain (the bridge and mid still stay quiet). Plenty loud and punchy. a little thin, not very "quacky" though. At least to me.

I may wind up replacing them, but it is very serviceable as-is.

Some days all the gold hardware is a bit much to look at  :laughing7:

I can foresee a day when the pickups have been swapped out, and the hardware replaced with Callaham goodies.

But overall it plays and sounds great.
