    This will be my third one since oh idk 2010. Every time I get rid of one it seems to find it's way back but yeah I paid $800 for my last one so its crazy cheap.

    Im gassing soo fuckin hard right now for a PRS torero. I just sold my se c24 floyd because the pickups were bland, i wasnt crazy about the neck, and for 24 frets, the extra .5 inch on the scale length of torero compared to just 25" on the c24will make much more difference. Oh and ebony fretboard. And neck thru.

    The problem is I also want an ESP E-ii horizon or mii

    My seven strings are all over the place... My A7 has 9-62's, Jackson Solist7 has 9-56's, and RG752 FX7 with 10-59's. I've never owned an LTD... or ESP for that matter but I feel as if I'm going to sincerely jive with this one. Head-stock logo is the ONLY thing I don't dig regarding aesthetics but it's beginning to grow on me.

    Just placed the 20% deposit for my first kiesel. Now we play the waiting game.

    How many weeks should I expect to wait?

    For them to authorize the return, or for them to tell you it's an option 50 and you won't get a refund?

    I kid, I kid... :lol:

    I think current wait time is like 2-4 months depending on how crazy you spec'd it. Enjoy!

    I'm starting to GAS really hard for a Randall RD100 or a Marshall DSL100. The Randall sounds huge and it's quite cheap.

    I went pretty basic: solid gloss finish, 5 piece neck. I hope to have It in 2 months.

    Yeah that seems like the longest I've heard of anyone waiting unless some crazy finish options.

    It looks like embossed plastic that was glued on. You’ll probably be able to remove it if you want

    That's what I figured with the 3D appearance of it. It'll have to be okay as I have no plans to remove it and subsequently refinish the head-stock to get it to match up to the factory finish. Just wish they had kept the older LTD script... maybe screen printed in a contrasting gloss black. That woulda looked cool imo.

    Duncan distortion incoming for my charvel/jazzmaster thing. Swapping pickups on pickguard guitars is so annoying though.

    pssh you think that's bad, try swapping pickups in a regular tele. the bridge also covers the bridge pickup, so you have to unscrew the bridge from the body to install a new pickup. :nuts:

    Also helps it was the rare silver satin finish.

    EDIT: Uhh, for some reason the one in the picture is a regular Swede, but trust me, I made sure the one I purchased wasa Super. :lol:

    I think that's appropriate punishment for playing a Tele :fever:

    Part of playing a Telecaster is realizing the guitar isn't doing you any favors as far as comfort or playability, so the extra hassle in pickup swaps comes with the territory :lol: that said, my god do I love my Tele anyway :D

    Eh, I saw a reasonably priced amp that reminded me of "The Terminator" so I went for it:
