    Got her yesterday.

    The previous owner had the bridge blocked off. So the first thing I did was to remove the block, set up the trem, tweak the truss rod, new strings and she plays perfectly.

    Love the snappy articulate tones I am getting and the neck feels amazing.

    Thanks. It does have 2 small dings on the bottom that show wood - where it rests on your leg but they are small. A few scratches on the lacquer on the rear - belt marks no doubt. I don't mind though. Just means I wont cry when I make my first mark!

    HNGD! Gorgeous guitar. What pickups are in it? The fat 50's I presume?

    Did any of the 2014-60th anniversary guitars come with a rosewood neck?

    From what I read they are 'special design 1954 pickups' I really like them. Only 6k ish from what I have read. So chimey and articulate. I was really expecting it to be 'very' bright, what with an ash body and maple board but it just isn't. I mean it's bright but not in your face. Not trebley nor harsh. Even on the bridge pickup suprisingly. Maybe its the Alnico III slugs mellowing it out.. not sure but it works what ever it is.

    The tone is balanced and it has a ton of spank if you dig in. Really noticable when I do hammer on's. The harder you play the more it bites back at you.

    It's light as a feather too.

    I just can't stop playing it.

    Thanks! Yeh the gold kinda goes with the finish I think.

    Love the tone this guy gets:

    It's made me gas for a 63 vibroverb too
