    Installing a 9 volt battery for the piezo pickup preamp, tweaking its EQ then blending in the humbuckers, having all three pickups at once through the mono output - SWEET !
    I think they're discontinued.

    Hey hey hey ! What all Les Pauls should be if you ask me. Light chambered body, belly cut and great pups. BTW, they are still available.

    I have the first version that didn't have the electronic wizardry. Love it. The only thing I'd like better on this model, is a fatter neck.

    Mine was a special run for Australia I was told. How it ended up in my hands in Canada ? Dunno, but I'm happy it did.

    Nice color, but I like a quilt better as it's not split in the middle.

    I noticed the specs don't mention the SATIN finish on the back of the neck.
    If you close-up the pic of the guitars' back, you can barely see it.
    It's meant to make the neck non-stick and faster/more comfortable.

    Mine is a 2012 cherry sunburst floor model from a long gone Best Buy store.
    Gently played and greatly appreciated.

    I no longer have mine. It was a nice playing and sounding guitar...I really liked the built in tuning thingy. The "acoustic" pickup was not clean enough for me, I specifically bought it for that reason, so I traded it for something. This was mine:
