Hi! This is my first post after lurking for a long time.
I recently got one of these, slightly on a whim (first shortscale, first offset, first NEW new guitar I've bought since 1998 or something). I saw one in the guitar shop near my work and probably wouldn't have picked it up if I hadnt read this thread.
Yeah, these are really great for the price: the hardware is all decent, there are a couple of rough patches where the neck meets the headstock but nothing drastic. The pickups are pretty good for the price too, I would have left them on but I had always intended to change them for some P90 types which I have done today. I got some Irongear Alchemists, which I had to do a bit of filing of the pickguard to fit, but it sounds so great now, they suit it really well.
This is a really fun guitar to play. My inner teenager wants to put stickers on it and I really want to find a different coloured pickguard. I've got some tru-oil knocking about so I may see how flamey the neck can get. I'd probably change the saddles and the tuners at some point too...

I like the look of those pickups in that guitar...

Thanks. It was dead easy even for my clumsy fingers. I really dont think I would have picked it up if not for the praise and the cool mods done on here and I cant believe it only cost 115 plus 45 for the pups off ebay!

Looks good. The single line of pole pieces somehow suits the design better. Looks less crunched together than humbuckers.

So I guess one would need to file the ends of the corners of the pickups holes for something like this, right?

^^ yeah definitely. I don’t have any photos of my mustang currently to share but the pickup routes are rounded.
