This is all ya need, solid slab of wood, some good pickups, no fuss bridge, good vintage style tuners, neck feels to me, like a cross between an SG and a LPJ, a bit less fretboard radius than a LP and a bit wider, great for rock riff age and banging out powerful chords. I got a blemish, making it a great deal for a made in USA guitar for 850 bucks. There was nothing I could see blemished, I think maybe someone wasn’t expecting the finish to be a white wash and sent it back for the other finish. I really like the white wash, it should yellow over time and get nice and worn in look and feel. Yeah, I want a P90 version now too... In the same white wash finish. It’s sexy AF... it’s got it’s own vibe and mojo, a few things I would prefer but as a whole. This is a blues or rock n roll machine, you don’t need anything else. Just plug and play. Came perfectly setup. Packed well. The bag is junk, who cares. But I would prefer at least the brown leather bag personally. It’s good out of the box as is. But there’s a few mods you can do if you want. But you don’t need to. It’s good to go. The bless and open box deals, are totally worth it.
