I received this gorgeous guitar Friday 5-21-2021! The fit and finish is immaculate. The action was a tad high but I set it down and it can get really low. So low in fact that I raised it back up some to my preference. Plays like a dream and sounds fantastic. Now the negative points. Issue #1 - The fluence open core classic pickups have 3 voices. PAF, hotrodded, and single coil. My guitar was wired to have only voices one and two. No single coil. The single coil wires for each pickup wasn't even wired in. The neck volume pot push/pull worked the neck pickup and the tone worked the bridge respectively for voice two, only. I find that a little bizarre. I rewired it and now it all works as intended voice wise. Issue #2 and the biggest issue - The neck pickup has barely any routing clearance under it. The routing is fine per typical depth, but these fluence pickups are pretty tall. Once I set the action down I had to completely remove the foam pads from under the neck pickup in order to get the pickup low enough to not touch the strings. The neck pickup is completely bottomed out atm and needs to go even lower but it's physically impossible. The way it sits right now the top of the neck pickup is almost dead even with the top of the fret board. I can't do anything about that because I'm not routing it deeper or paying to have it done. I'll remind that this is AFTER removing the foam under the pickup. It is manageable now but needs more travel because at this height the neck pickup read more is a little too loud for my taste but will be ok and probably fine for the average user, but now I have zero adjustability for the neck pickup. Overall I love this guitar and would buy another in a heart beat!
