This little guy had been hanging in the local GC for some time now. They've already lowered the price on these a good bit, then with my frequent buyer discount added I just couldn't refuse :tongue: So far I'm way more impressed with it than I expected, so it looks like it's finally got a good home. Classy tuxedo look... it's just a solid workhorse rocker! Feels, plays and sounds great. I'm liking these pickups a bit better than the 245 pups on a lot of the other SE's. At least they work great on the guitar. Not much to change. The pups are 4 wire so I might add some series/parallel pull pots just add some sweetness if I want it. I like this bridge way better than the 'locking' one on the Akesson... that thing was a pita. The only reservation I had about this was the daisy rock star inlays, but I'm just gonna rock those mother truckers :top: ...at least they're not the same old boring plastic birds... And the exceptional deal included a very nice, high quality S2 gig bag...ROCK!
