General What is your overall opinion of this product? The finish isn't as nice as my other 2 Epi's; there are some runs in the finish, the binding in the f-holes is uneven, and the frets are pretty rough, even after going over them with an 8000-grit Stewmac fret eraser. But it sounds & plays very nice, the fretboard & body binding looks really nice, and the headstock inlay is beautiful. When I purchased it, AMS' ad read that it has a roller bridge; not true, it's a standard Tunematic, but still keeps the tuning fairly stable using the Bigsby, which has a softer spring than my Wildkat. Allparts has a drop-in roller bridge for $25 plus shipping, which is the only mod I plan to make. The p-ups sound nice--as single coils, very chimey, and as humbuckers, can get nice & fat; they're wired backwards...in for single coil & out for humbucker. It also came with an LP-style transparent pick guard, but as the guitar is not pre-drilled for it, it won't go on; I think it would clutter up its clean & classy looks.

What is your overall opinion of this product? I love the Swingster,but this guitar (I know, it was a scratch and dent, but come on)was not remotely close to being set up and pickguard parts are missing. I understand it has been unpacked before but send me all the pieces. I have bought scratch and dent from this company before and they have always been excellent. Now I have to find someplace to order pickguard parts and wait for them before I can use this guitar. Not to mention the setup and an immediate string change.
