I have terrible GAS for one of these.
Can anybody weigh in with their experience?
Any preference between models? Are they the same neck just different bodies?
Any info on the new MIM ones? Am I best holding out for a 2nd hand MIJ?
Are the non recessed floyds on the MIJ models a pain in the ass for being almost dive only or isnt it a problem?
MIJ/MIUSA all the way. I haven't played the MIM ones, but those MIJ and MIUSA necks are stunning, and I much prefer the top-mounted Floyd.
There's plenty of room for pullups on those Floyds; they're certainly not dive-only.
IIRC, it's the same neck on different body styles.
I had this one. I don't regret selling it (mainly because I have other guitars that do what this one did) but it was gorgeous, played amazingly, and sounded awesome
You will be hard-pressed to find a better rock/metal guitar anywhere near that price range.
