    Still a few gremlins, but the guitar sounds great, I really like the P92. MJT did a great job with the finish, but there was a fair amount of overspray in the neck pocket. Don’t know why they didn’t tape it off. Although I tried to clean it out, the neck isn’t seated as well as I would like.

    This is also my first time dealing with Warmoth. Both the body and neck look pretty good although the nut was cut kinda shallow. The neck feels great, the satin nitro is really smooth. The modern construction neck is interesting, there’s a truss rod adjustment on the side of the heel.

    Looks nice.

    The truss rod adjustment on the side of the heel is neat, I've seen several older Mustangs where people have taken a chuck out of the pickgaurd attempting to reach the adjustment screw.

    Hard to argue with the color combination, and I like the bridge.
