    It’s a personal taste choice. Different strokes for different folks

    I gave it a little bit of a set up last night. Tonight I’m gonna tweak the intonation but yeah it’s a really nice guitar for the money. Thanks for being the test pilot and giving me the heads up

    I ordered a lizard green, likely be the first mod, removing the pickguard.

    I agree with that. They remind me of an old refrigerator.

    My first electric was a Teisco Del Rey ET200 in '69...I sold it in '71 or'72...over the years I looked for one like it, never could find one until a couple months ago...bought it, came with a gig bag...it's the only guitar I would "need" a bag for...my first...(>sigh<)
    I hear Firefly's decent for the price...

    Btw I looked inside and this is what I found. I’m pretty sure this guitar was worked on since the bridge pick up is reversed

    After playing it for a while I think I will keep the black pick up rings on it.
