Took my new to me 2000 Special to the gig this Friday. What a heavenly neck, and killer tone out of those old pickups. I was in seventh heaven, until the room lights went down. Then I dropped a couple clams...I couldn't see the pearl dots on that ebony board fast enough. Those big trapezoids have their uses, yes they do! Guess I'll have to get used to using the side dots more. Wonder what the learning curve's gonna be? Dang it.
