    really liked the color on this guy and the neck clicked with me so I had to grab it. Ice blue metallic affinity. The spec sheets I can find for these say they have a compound radius but idk if that’s a fact jack, never had one so I wouldn’t know if I’d be able to tell visually. Neck pickup is fine but the bridge pickup turns the guitar into a drum. I can hear my fingers moving on the fretboard and every tap and creak very clearly and it is unpleasant any suggestions? I see a lot about cavity stuffing and tightening the piss out of the bridge plate but I also see a lot of stuff that says that’s how it’s “supposed” to sound but I don’t wanna hear my strap moving around while I play call me crazy

    edit: when I say I hear my fingers on the fretboard I don’t mean string squeaks (they’re there too) I mean I head the sound of finger on wood translated into the amp signal

    Nice!

    I put some soft and foamy stuff in the cavities. Behaving much gentler now. On the other hand.. some like it hot.

    Those red strings are a totally dumb gimmick for grade A suckers.

    They are therefore tailor-made for me and my red guitar.

    Sold.

    I am not joking. <sigh>

    That’s a really nice color!! Glad the neck feels good as well!! For the hum, you may shield the cavities, or try the foam mentioned- Let us know how that’s working out!!! Pink DR’s- sweet- do the feel like flats??
