    Ordered from Sweetwater last night. Currently out of stock :( But I pre-ordered, should be in a couple weeks.

    Sales rep just emailed and said he snagged one from a customer who had it on "HOLD" but since I have already paid, he's going to get it and send it to me!!! WOOO HOOO!!! Ships tomorrow.

    Here's a stock photo, will update when it arrives.

    Those get rave reviews and the pickups are supposed to be fantastic.

    Congrats !!!!!
    I absolutely love mine… all stock except for Mastery bridge and Fender tremolo. Some do change the pickups, but I don't understand why. Beautiful finish and detail… The only downside is the switches can go bad fairly easily, but that's an easy upgrade. I wouldn't change anything else… love the neck, great feel.

    I might add that I thought the action was too high also, so I did shim the neck. 1/4" wide strip of credit card at the body end of the neck joint. Easy fix.

    Enjoy! I got one a couple years ago, totally love it. The pickups don't sound great out of the box but if you adjust up the pole pieces they sound pretty good. And yes, don't be surprised when the toggle switch bites the dust.

    I played for a just a bit last night. Immediate impressions:

    1) much heavier than my other guitars. not a big deal
    2) the finish on the neck is really nice
    3) I usually play med-jumbo frets, but the jumbo frets had me a bit worried. no worries there
    4) on the 3 way switch, the trebles become biting if I roll off the volume, so obviously I will have to adjust the treble bleed circuit. HOWEVER....
    5) the combination of the jazz circuit and three way switch is mind-blowing. now, I just have to figure how to use it. in my band for some songs, I would add fuzz or distortion or OD, then roll of the volume to clean it up. now, I can just hit the jazz circuit. Preset the volume on the three way switch, preset the volume on the jazz circuit, and switch between them. amazing!
    6) the jazz circuit is not a "dark" as I imagined it would be. in fact, as others have mentioned, I can foresee getting a really, really nice fuzz tone out of the jazz circuit.
    7) even as I think about it, my mind boggles at the possibilities
    8) before I plugged it in, I added a set of Schaller strap locks to it. I never had these before. WOW!!! why have I never had these before? awesome !
    9) I can not wait to get home today to continue experimenting.
