Will be doing some mods once she arrives, but I hear nothing but great things about these. [smilie=cool-smiley-031.gif]

You won't believe what these can be had for!

This was $355 shipped no case. I should have pounced on the one I saw last week with case for $309 plus shipping. [smilie=icon_confused.gif]

I did Mark thanks. Mont had a pair of Darkstars (DS1, and a DS2), I'm considering, but if Pete Way prefers Epi's over Gibson's, I got to give these a chance right? [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

I'll take a look at the harness, and if it's what I think it is, I'll beef it up. The tuners also. I'm also staring at a couple of Fender neck options around here. I'll know, once it's in my hands, where I am gonna go.

Welcome back to the club Pete... funny, I've been eyeing one of those & thinking of another Fenderbird Mod, but been rockin' my black Non-Rev lately & that is workin' just fine!
