Got it used at a smoking deal. I've wanted one for a while, we'll see if I bond with it. Did a full clean up and set up and it plays great. Very light, easily under 8 lbs, closer to 7. The pickups may just stay, they aren't junk, and split decently with the coil tap tone knob. A pair of all black used Duncan's might wind up in it though. I put a strat volume knob on it, I like to see numbers. I honestly don't think the Tribute series can be beat for the money.
