    I don't think there's much to say other than that it's awesome.
    You really get a lot of guitar for your money with this thing.
    The only bad thing would be the truss rod adjustment, but fortunately the neck was perfect with just a slight bit of relief, and changing the strings to 10's didn't do anything. On to the mandatory pics:

    Sweet. I wish they'd do a Jake E. Lee tribute version of that with a white painted headstock, rosewood board and []\\ pickups.

    Really, the only things wrong with those are the truss rod and the shitty term arm. Otherwise, they're completely awesome guitars for the price.

    Nice score! I want one of those so bad! I've already picked white too as the colour to go for. It's going to be my Maiden/Malmsteen guitar. I had the money a few months back but I'd just gotten a 7 string around then so I said I'd wait. Now my covers gigs have dried up and I won't have the cash for a while. The truss rod thing is annoying, it's a little flaw that could easily have been avoided.

    I just don't understand the truss rod thing. It would have been so easy to correct. Take a page from Warmoth Charvel.
