    The short version, I bought the guitar, I won't have it for a few months, it's complicated, the review from fellow who has it for now:
    "Well I unboxed it, overall clean guitar. The bridge is taped down, has a brass tru arc.
    It has flat wounds one it, not my choice but tunes up great and nice low action. Very flat neck nearly zero relief. Well balanced pickups between the neck and the bridge, neck pickup is heaven love it.
    Spare bridge and bigsby arm in the case.

    I think I'll enjoy this guitar for the time I'll have it but I'm still playing it
    This thing sounds pretty darn good,
    I can't put it down but these flat wound strings have to go
    I'm more then positive you'll be happy with the guitar"

    Someday I'll actually play it - I hope ;)

    I'm extremely jealous...!

    Any idea what year? There have been some substantial changes, not good or bad, just changes. IE, some had solid tops, some had TV Jones etc. etc.

    2011 if memory serves correct, Filtertrons

    My 3 Pro Lines are all TVJ so this fills a hole, while making one in my wallet

    Looks recent to me. I have flat wound strings on mine for jazz. Enjoy it when you get it.

    Thought you were speaking Canuckistan. BTW, punctuation in above also appears to be an issue for you.

    Of course I'm still on a flip-phone so I have fewer excuses as I only use a full size keyboard.

    Ha ha - it's a welcome hole. I think you might have a solid spruce top on that guitar. If I get a CC, this is exactly what I want - solid top and standard Filters.

    How does the neck feel?
