General What is your overall opinion of this product? Very versatile sounds. Clean highs with no "ice pick in your ears". Middle position gives a "creamy jangle" while the bridge position brings the growl and meat when you dig in or turn up the gain. Came out of the box set up and intonated perfectly. No flaws in the finish. Double boxed by vendor (AMS). However, it loses a star since I had to put a $6 eBay roller saddle on it for Bigsby tuning stability. I also folded up a dryer sheet and wedged it under the pickguard to suppress some static generated by the pearloid pickguard (easy fix to common problem with these type of pickguards) that registered on the pickups. Seriously though, despite these two little hiccups, it required less work than any guitar I've ever had, and I WON'T need to replace the stock pickups - they're great. Recommend Dunlop Nickel Wound 9s when you decide to replace the stock strings (though I kept the original strings for a few weeks). Purchased via AMS 3-payment plan, which was also trouble-free.
