tuned it up out the box.... fret buzz everywhere, but action is set way low. Planning on putting on a new set of strings along with the roller bridge I ordered. Going to wait on installing the super distortion pickup.
Playing around with it it seems like a couple of the tuners are a bit dodgy... looks like I will change them out for some planet wave locking.

I love my Planet Waves Auto-trim locking tuners. Every time I change a string with them, I just feel spoiled. Don't even carry a set of nippers anymore.

I havent tried them, I think I saw you mention them and somebody else as well so I did some reading and decided what the heck I'll try a set..

It turned out great looking. That top looks really nice.

Does it have a lot of three dimensional flame to it?

it does have somewhat of a 3d ripple at some angles.... overall I'm happy with it, let the modifications begin......heh

Great looking guitar Russ! It's cool to see that youve gone for a more unusual design,which fit's your need's,and not other's. Does it play well out the box??

It has the regular new chinese guitar issues, buzzing frets... action is really low also not fond of the strings they put on, and 2 of the tuners seem to slip, other than all is good. Its a different beast compared to my 86 charvel model 2...
