    It's just the standard butterscotch, but I was trying out some filters on my phone!

    It's gorgeous! Is it poly or nitro?

    All Bajas have been poly since 2006. The poly is thick but Tone is deep in these. Mine still looks new. Sounds awesome.

    HNGD, my friend.

    these are intriguing...broadcaster/twisted tele setup, v neck, 4 way switching, brass saddles...never had a chance to pick one up though.

    How would the neck on these compare to the Brad Paisley signature, the 52 avri, or the american standard? Rolled edges?

    The neck is really comfortable, the V is subtle, less of a V than the CP50s Strat used to own.

    I think the Paisley has a 'reversed ' soft V neck. The 'V' is at the upper end (headstock) on the Paisley, as opposed to the "V" at the lower end (near the body) on the Baja.

    You need to add it to the list, in the Guitar Owners' Clubs thread (120+ pages of goodness).
    Is it a new one- or did you snag it second-hand?

    It's used, I checked the serial and it's a 2013 or 2014.
