Bought this back in July at the Tampa meetup but just picked it up a couple weeks ago. Not sure what my plans are for it yet-I put some 11's on it, it plays well and the action is alright but it's also set low as it can go which is worrisome, the neck doesn't seem to be compromised but maybe it was set poorly from the factory.

If I can sort it out I might try to find some Gibson pickups for it (4 conductor to keep the coil split).

hahahaha

Was a different store tho. The fog machine was at GC I think, the Daisy Rock came from Replay-the store that was trying to close and we thought because I was buying a guitar they'd stay open for like 10 more minutes but NOPE.

That looks brilliant.

How thin are the bodies on these? I always imagined they less than an inch at the edge. What's the scale length?

Scale length is 25", I was actually thinking it was 24" before measuring because the neck feels small (just over 1 1/2" width at the nut). It would explain why these 11's feel unreasonably heavy, since I normally put 10's on my 24.5"+ scale guitars.

Not counting the tummy contour the body is 1 1/2" thick.

More Patrick Eggle Berlin/PRS for me.

Not keen on the finish, don't know what its worth in stock form but I reckon I'd refinish it.

Huh. I always imagined these as being like mini-Ibanez Artists. I always imagined they were 24" or even less.

The finish is more like a burst over pearloid isn't it?

There is one guitar with a full pearloid cover on top that I was eyeing for a time some years ago. It's a Godin Radiator. 5-6 years ago they sold for $200-250 used, but the last time I checked ebay people were asking $400-500 for them

A lot of Italian guitars have that aesthetic, I understand it comes from accordions etc that would have had fully pearloided bodies.
