It's really nice. It's in really great shape, there's a scuff on the headstock's tip and a scratch by the control plate. But I'm not that concerned with perfect finishes.

The neck is actually pretty thick. Thicker than my CP Jag, and much thicker than my CIJ Compstang. But the finish on the neck is really smooth, and the frets are quite nice.

The dots on the board are tiny, which doesn't look bad. It's very fun to play.

Thanks! There was one at the guitar center here years ago, and I came really close to getting it then. Someone else bought it, and I figured if I ever had another one for sale locally, I'd buy it. Then someone put this on ebay for a really great price. Couldn't resist.

Congrats! We are all very proud of you pulling the trigger on that one. Enjoy!

Awesome.

I want the baritone version that has "bottom master" on the headstock.

I am not mature enough to have a guitar that says that on a phallic shaped headstock.

I apparently have a pretty consistent aesthetic.

Those two jags and the mustang together are just a sick guitar collection by themselves.

If you notice, the scale gets smaller left to right. I suppose my next guitar will be a Squier mini or an old 1990s MIM Duo Sonic.
