Pretty nice. Yeah, pretty nice... Actually I wasn't as wowed as I expected to be. I've been talking about a PS with the guys at my local store (GuitarGuitar in the UK) for a while, and so they called me when these two landed. A 594 and a Custom 24, and it was very interesting to compare the two. Both had the same pickups (58/15 LTs), and the CU24 had a maple neck. Of course both were beautifully set up and pretty much flawless in their execution, but the difference from a regular model did not seem as big as going from say a regular factory strat to a custom shop one. Of the two, I preferred the CU24. The way it played felt slightly nicer, and the maple neck gave it a bit of extra punch and clarity, but not so much that playing higher up the neck felt overly bright. I was split on the necks, I did prefer the pattern vintage neck on the 594 for chords, but I've never liked asymmetrical necks for lead, and I still don't. The CU24 had a pattern regular neck which was fine, but I prefer them slightly chunkier. So given my musing on ordering one it was instructive and provided some excellent questions to ask when the time comes. And if you're wondering, my current basic spec is now a CU24 with maple neck but 594 style electrics. And don't worry, I know you're all only reading this for one thing. Here's the pics.
