As noted above, the "standard" version has a 7.25" radius fretboard and much more vintage-sounding, lower-output pickups. I had one for two days when a mail-order place sent me the wrong guitar. Though I loved the neck, I didn't care for the pickups. The "modified" model has a 9.5" radius fretboard, 4-way switch, out-of-phase switch, and more modern-sounding pickups (Twisted Tele neck, Broadcaster bridge - a great set).Nice! What is the " Modified"? How does it differ from the unmodified?
Everyone's definition of ideal action is different, but I have this one where I like it - about 1.7mm on the high E, 1.75 on the low E. The high E buzzes when I fret it at the 12th and hit it more than lightly; the 13th fret is a tad high under that first string, and I haven't taken the time to fix it yet. Once I do, I suspect I could drop it to 1.6mm without any issues.I own the exact guitar. Equally as heavy. I’ve weighted it several times because I can’t believe it. I do love the sound. How’s the action on yours? Be had trouble getting it low enough at the 12th fret. I’ve even put in a cereal box neck shim, which helped a bit. I have a white pick guard - which I like because it fits the simplicity of the tele.
