I don't know if mine's a freak accident, but I got mine for $320 that one time, and mine sounds literally amazing, full rich, SO resonant, tight, mean, creamy, it literally does anything. Idk if I got lucky wood or something, Like the opposite of a 'lemon', you know what I mean? It could also be my first JB/59 combo in a while, but I'm pretty sure any pickups would sound good in this.
@others with this guitar, does yours sound awesome?
I got the C1 amateur. Found it a little rude and quite lazy TBH.
