    Howdy all, so my new axe (Black Betty) arrived today, did not have time to plug it in, just unboxed and inspected, can say came out of the box nearly flawless, was in tune not one sting buzz anywhere on the neck, action is just the way I like it, only thing it will need is a slight intonation and oil up the board, and put in a new Duracell Battery, ill plug it in tomorrow right now I'm too brain dead for anything else o_O

    That is a sweet axe for sure! Which EMG's are in it? I typically pull out any and all 81's and replace them with 85's then I normallybrun a 60 in the neck position. The only ones that don't have 60's in the necks have either SA or an 89.

    Bamalam!

    But it's a thing right? Where people post the first picture and always cut off the top of the headstock so us rubes gotta ask? :D

    Happens on too many threads to be accidental....

    So who made that monster??? EDIT: LTD...GOT IT!

    I have a hard time finding a situation where I would get a new guitar, take the time to take pictures, make a thread on ST and plug it in only the next day... sounds pretty BDSM
