They really are great guitars. I have one...a blue sparkle. Sold it but the sale fell thru and ended up keeping it and I am VERY HAPPY I did!!! The pickups in mine are actually pretty great, remind me of the SD JB/Jazz set I used to have in a SG. The neck under the pick guard goes slightly under the neck pickup and I wonder if that is part of why it's got the great sound on the neck pup. I've considered selling it a few other times and gotten some really good offers but I don't know I just love the little thing...I may still sell it eventually tho but for now I'm enjoying it too much!
The necks really are outstanding! To be honest it's one of the best necks I've ever played. Really little, which isn't normally my style, but super comfortable. The fit and finish is great too.
If you can find one get one.
Oh and the sparkle finishes are great! I thought it'd drive me nuts but I actually really like it.
