    Are you offering anything without the maple top (just the mahogany)? And without pickups?

    Also, what's the width at the nut?

    I have to admit that Godzilla Green is quite attractive.

    It's actually a thin veneer, so it's about 99% mahogany.

    Out on the Tiles, in New Jersey
    I played one of the white ones locally on 3 occasions, overall build quality very good, hardware usable, nut could be a little lower, but ok. (The nut on my Santa Fe was horridly high but otherwise I'm still on honeymoon; I love that guitar). The fretwork is very good too. He got the action down pretty low, plays very easily.
    Controls work well, sounds good too. He says the tuners are good enough and serviceable.

    Some fit and finish issues: are several small finish flaws like some places the quilting is just plain white just looks odd, some odd overspray on the body bevels, a few hard to spot small dents, and some little rough spots on the pick up covers.
    Both he and I are both picky about details; could have been done better at this price point.
    BUT nothing glaring, and considering the price point a VERY nice guitar.
    Let me repeat, I pointed out the imperfections just to be thorough. Worth pointing out but not a deal killer by any means.

    The string through concerned me in the photos with putting too much pressure on the bridge posts but it appears fine.

    I would buy one of these if I had the cash right now but I'm knee deep in 'splainin' the recent 18w and AXL LP Jr builds and NOS tube shopping to the wife.
    I got two little packages of shiny happy glass yesterday!!
