    Thanks for the compliment, it’s the only spalted top I liked. I’ve stalked many. Lol the pick ups seem to be pretty good thus far. They are bright. Decent low end. I am happy with its voice.

    Yeh its reassuring to me that we are not the only ones - mine is Korean made 'S23058'. So think that means it was a 2018 model. My Gretsch and Fender strat knobs all feel like the volume control but the tone definitely feels looser (maybe a bit too easy to turn). Anyway, congratulations on the guitar too - looks beautiful.

    Yeah it’s might be the push pull pot has some “play” in it? I’m not sure if mine is 2019 or 2018? The tag said it was packed on 9/28/18. But I believe they release the 2019’s in September or the prior year? Makes no difference to me, however mine is Indonesian from Cor-Tek.
    Thanks for the compliment. Much appreciated.

    Thank you! Yeah it appears that it’s not common to have both. So I’m pretty happy about that. Cheers

    I build guitars (F-style customs stuff) and while I've seen some spectacular pieces, like a one piece bubinga slab big enough to seat 12-14 people around it, I've never been in a lumber yard with spalted flame.

    The tone pot knob in mine (MiK) has a bit of play compared to the volume. I'm not at a point of playing skill to consider it an issue or problem.

    It is a different type of pot, push/pull vs standard, so it will feel different.....because it is different.

    Yeah I’m noticing a pattern here lol. It’s still very smooth and works flawlessly. I agree with @shimmilou
    They are a different type shaft.
    Glad we didn’t get “the shaft” lol
