I've been eyeing that same model for a while now and looking for a place to try it out. If you don't mind, I wanted to know a bit about it: How do you find the new pickups? Do they clean up when you roll the volume down? How's the sustain of the guitar? good, bad, average? Any tuning issues from using the Trem? And is it possible to drop tune without having to set up the guitar again? Sorry about asking so many questions but I've really wanted to know and not having a place to try it really limits my hands on experience.
