It's a cool looking guitar!

And if you couldn't live with the headstock, I bet a squier mustang or jag neck would go on there.

One that's still covered with the protective plastic, for starters, so the color is hard to see. I want to know neck specs, but I am tentatively intrigued.

Up to over $200 now. Any thoughts on Turser quality? Same/better/worse than Squier?

Last I checked you could find these around $150 all day long around the Amazon marketplace.

Been impressed with my Turser JTB-2B Beatle bass, 10 years on now... certainly no worse than an Epi.

Saw one at a guitar shop in Florida. Pretty sweet. Nice quality and played pretty good. Only problem is the company doesn't know how to ship anything. Dents everywhere...

I always wonder why people don't round off the guard by the bridge when going to a jm trem. The pick guard blends so well with the control plate, but the jagged bit by the top end of the bridge looks ghetto, smooth that shit out!

Needs Mastery trem.

EDIT: Wait, is it just me or does the trem look like it's mounted really crooked?

I was thinking the same thing. It has to be some sort of optical illusion. Right? Confused

I think the bridge is a little closer to the tailpiece on the bass side, as should be. In any case, it's actually set up correctly, which you rarely see in manufacturers' photos.

It's a Mosrite type bridge, by the way.

i angled the bridge on my tele to help compensate for intonation issues due to the short saddle travel.
