    What a beauty. More information is here.

    Though it looks like the bridge isn't too secure with those oversized post holes.

    Oh my. This would satiate the craving for a wine red Les Paul Custom quite nicely

    yeah nice Jet Zacky but his price for a used Jet he's asking way too much for it imo.
    Take off 500 and its a decent deal imo.
    His alleged swapping in of new volume pots achieved zero and is not an upgrade imo
    Be interesting to see what he gets for it :)

    I think I see, what you mean, Slim because it has Powertrons which have comparable output to a Gibson PAF Humbucker (7.5k ohms+)?

    From what I hear from folks, yes. I have never played through a set, and I have yet to hear a decent review where they are played to what is supposed to be their strengths. So I'm told that they have that slight PAF'ish sound when overdriven, and I know that they can deliver better cleans than a PAF. This guitar would theoretically tick off a few boxes for me.
