What model Dimarzios are in it now? How do they sound?
Dimarzio makes a lot of different PUs and they happen to make EXCELLENT vintage style PUs....
Very Nice Guitar!
The are two ways to reduce manufacturing costs:
Move manufacturing overseas with lower labor rates for skilled works
Keep manufactuing in the USA...
In a good way.
Looks like a typical finish crack.
If everything else on the guitar is fine it wouldn't bother me.
That looks like it got hit by a rapid temperature change.
Was the guitar shipped to you? It may have been on a very cold delivery truck and then...
I too am not a fan of the 57+. I just replaced it with a Duncan JB in the bridge of my Les Paul. Huge improvement.
Congrats on a stunning guitar
