Took four of these in at my new work today, and they are the biggest heaps of shit I've ever played. Apart from the fact that two didn't have correct wiring out the box (no output on one because the hot was earthed to a pot, and the earth connected to the amp twice - how the fuck anyone can do that is beyond me).
The routing is appalling, the neck is covered in some sort of adhesive, there is a pair of channels either side of the neck join where I can stick Jazz III's as a surrogate pick holder, and the corners of the heel were sharp enough to break skin. The pickup routes are shocking too (why the hell don't have lots of pickup surrounds lying around, they could put them in this!), but on the upside the polycarbonate cavity covers is cool as fuck.
The fact that three out of four of them had different cases is the clincher.
A 'spares special' if I ever saw one.
