    It's a DiMarzio DP223 BKU PAF
    I should have some sort of opinion on it in a day or two.

    When is your next practice?
    It might be interesting to hear what the band hears from it.

    That sure has a purty mouth, err fretboard. Nice score!

    Glad the finish feels great...I dig a satin finish on an acoustic, and only had an S2 which I assume is much different than this.

    More importantly...how does it TASTE?

    Interesting aren't they?
    Not sure about them yet.
    I am considering getting some black rings and switch tip (also painted) to see what that looks like stock without wrecking the paint job.

    I see, so it’s a paint job and not a stain job? If that’s the case I won’t scold you for swapping them out, but if that is matching stained wood I think you’d be crazy to change em.

    Yeah, it's a paint job done by a previous owner, over the stock black rings. Whomever did it took their time to match the top flame.

    Great guitar! Quite a unique combination of features. My WL 594 came with a 57/08 in the bridge, and I ended up swapping it out to a covered Duncan JB, I love the combo of the 58/15 lt neck with a hot(ish) bridge pickup.
    Now to figure out how I can sneak a rosewood neck past the Mrs..........

    Interesting! Still fiddling with it for now. I think the Dimarzio is 8.60 kohm, not sure what the 58/15 LT is.
