Yeah Toni. Thanx

It is in the beginning it felt a little "strange" but I am getting used to the neck.

It is great. Also the sound of the pick ups are great. The pick ups are without humming.

this is a fantastic guitar biggrin.gif

Hi there Lian,


yes it is. Thx.

QUOTE (ZakkWylde @ Feb 5 2010, 10:36 PM) *
Nice! I don't understand the bodywood though, is it alder or mahagony?



Hi Zakk

The body is made of alder.

There is an area cut out from the neck pocket down to the bridge that wasereplaced with a block of mahogany.
The neck mounts to this, the pickups mount into it and the bridge mounts into it as well.

The tone block helps add sustain and give the guitar a richer, more defined tone.

On top of all that they placed a beautiful book matched, highly figured maple top.

Hope this clear it for you

What a nice guitar! I'm planning on buying a music man guitar myself, though it would be the Petrucci edition.
