    I just bought this from @Bigdogdaddy

    Now the waiting starts.

    I haven't played it yet, but what mods should I plan for? :whistling:

    cool man!
    mods?
    hmmmmm.....lets see...
    first i would probably change the bridge to a newer one, then i would of course put a black loaded pick guard on it.....then i would go ahead and put on a new neck that has 22 frets, and finally i would change the body to an oly white one.
    oh, and change the tuners..gotta have the locking ones....you know, so it stays in tune better..:sneaky:

    no.
    on a serious note, you may have tuning issues with that string tree. it has no spacer and puts a sharp angle on those two strings. both my mim's had tuning problems because of it....so change the tree. and thats it.

    Actually I was only joking about the mods. I tend to like the stock MIM ceramic pickups. I may change the pots and switch if I feel the need, but that would be about it.

    I do like the pickups in them too actually, they're hot and loud lol. The other stuff I have usually done more for durability/ruggedness.

    AND, I came this close (holds fingers together) to taking that neck and putting it on my American Deluxe. Glad you bought it first.

    Which is best practice, if it's not broke don't fix it. Play it first always.

    This one is actually midnight blue. Looks purple in the right light.
