This fantastic short scale guitar is perfect. The 90 pickups give me the sound I wanted. Thanks for your advice.
Had this about a fortnight now so still very much in the honeymoon period, however so far it seems excellent. Had to tweak the intonation a bit but expected that would be the case, the neck is great, no sharp ends on the frets. Would recommend putting 11s on this as the 10s it came with were pretty floppy ( 24” scale ). Overall it’s a cracking little punk rock guitar.
This is a fantastic guitar. My only slight issue is that the nut wasn't cut terribly well (high E string too close to the edge of the fretboard). Other that that, it sounds ace, has a wonderful neck and plays superbly - oh, and it looks killer in Burgundy Mist Metallic. Even the P90s are pretty quiet compared to other P90s I've played.
Was so excited to get this after seeing it at NAMM 2020. It is just as gorgeous in real life and plays beautifully. Short scale neck perfect for my little hands and what an unladylike sound from such a beautiful guitar. Love it!
