    It came in around 7pm last night. Got a couple hours of playing in. Love it so far. First off, craftsmanship is top notch, just a beautiful piece of art. Had to get used to picking w/ the middle pickup but after 10 minutes or so it was not an issue. I didn't get a picture of the neck but the flamed maple neck feels great. From having only humbucker electrics, I've not played too much on single coil, and I'm loving it so far. Neck PUP sounds like a strat (did a blue sky jam and it sounded great), bridge sounds like a telly (real twangy, I play a lot of country/rock so it's perfect), middle sounds like Jer's sweet bliss. Didn't really get a chance to get loud (wife was home) but planning on giving it hell this afternoon. Maybe I can set it down long enough to get more pictures....

    Sweeeeet! Have you played a 513? I'm curious to see how they differ from each other. I really dig the 509s!

    @Smitty1517 , Sweet sweet guitar!!! Love my 509!

    The 513 to me was a little darker when I had one a few years ago. Never used the "Heavy" settings much. Switching is less complicated with the 509 as well.
    I feel like with my 509, if I want to growl, the bridge stays in double coil mode. If I want to twang, I tap it with the switch. Love the middle pickup and combinations
    with it!!! Definitely Swiss Army Knife with all the switching positions being useful!

    Yeah..... if it's as crazy as my Faded Whale Blue quilt top in different light, it'll have about 99 personalities but the [email protected] ain't one... o_O:D
