    The setup- I've been gassing for a guitar similar to the B&G Little Sister guitars. I finally saw one on FleaBay this morning, and decided to take the plunge. It's made by King. ???? who knows what kind of quality it will be but for a little over $200 I figured what the heck.

    Wow, that looks really nice. The B&G has always had me GAS’ing.
    Didn’t find this one on eBay, good find! What did you search for? Let us know how it is when you get it.
    Congrats

    It finally came in today (thanks FedUp) for the run around) and unfortunately haven't had much time to really play with it. It looks good, and it did come with the hardshell tweed case which was cool. The guitar itself....it needs a lot of fretwork. No sprouting, but frets 6-7-8 seem to be sticking up or the fretboard is humped right there, not sure yet. Truss rod adjustment doesn't help unfortunately. So if I keep it (likely) i'll be needing to get a fret leveling block from StewMac. I was hoping it wouldn't be that much of a project but since I haven't found one of this body style until now, I'll probably keep it and go to work.

    I hope to plug it in tomorrow.

    I'm not crazy about the headstock, but the rest of the guitar looks cool! We want a full report when you get it!

    Yep, the headstock is kind of big. Not too bad though.

    The P90s seem to be on the mild side. Neck is average, not too skinny or chunky.

    The case actually fits my PRS Bernie Marsden, which is kind of cool.

    So, I've had a little time to mess with the guitar. It needed a fret leveling. So I ordered a sanding block from StewMac. Kind of a new experience, as I have fret files and have dressed individual frets before, but I've never gone to town on the entire neck of a guitar. But so far so good. I haven't even crowned the frets yet but it already is a vast improvement.
