    So...I have been looking at these since their release, but haven't seen one in the wild that I can lay my hands on.

    It has some very nice appointments, from what I can tell...specifically the split 57/08 Bridge and P90 Neck pups, WF neck, short scale, and updated headstock (which is an aesthetic bonus).

    Have any of you played one? Is it worthy of a place in my heart? Will it make me play like C.R. ????

    Just looking for insight from those with firsthand experience.

    My RL Vela needs a roommate to share time on my Sonzera!!!

    You ask that question here? Of course you need one!

    I would expect nothing less from the Premier Enabler... ;)

    Broad-brush encouragement to buy one being set aside (if for a brief moment, only)...I'd like to hear from some folks who own (or used to own) one, in an effort to compile mental blender fodder.

    My advice is to order one then decide if you need it when it arrives. My best guess is, it will be a, must have :)

    I know, I know. If I had one, I'd be telling you how awesome it is. If it's anything like the Bernie, it'll be killer!

    If you have to ask, you don’t need it - yet.

    There has to be someone out there who can convert this poor guy’s idle curiosity into a burning desire. Enable away.

    The humbucker/P-90 combo alone justifies further G.A.S.

    Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!;)
    If you don't comply within 48 hours your avatar must be changed to a pink uke for 1 year as punishment:oops:!

    Funny that no one here is recommending that you buy one! :p

    I'm not a SC guy, but these guitars are popular for a reason, I'd very much like to try one out.

    Just got mine yesterday. Love it. It is the real deal. It sits proudly next to my R0. Plays like a dream and the tones are awesome.
