    It is strange because yes it is darker than the 1+ that was in the neck but did have what some guys here call high end sparkle and lots of sizzle

    After playing quite a bit, I can say that I'm very impressed: the redesigned shape of the angel seems to make for an overall bigger guitar(than a classic)but weight distribution is superbly balanced. Lightweight and sounds surprisingly loud unplugged.

    Soundwise the HSH with the switching I'd chosen gives me the widest array of instantly accessible tones (I emphasize 'instantly' vs switcheroo) honestly there are sounds on here I don't currently yet have an idea when to apply

    The trem(i think mine's not a Floyd)is extremely pleasing. The bar feels spongey, easy to control with no mechanical give in the attachment socket, I hope it'll stay that way. Tuning stability after extra testing, is splendid. Being a fully floating system however it has some natural problems such as with double-stop bends and the tension of strings fighting each other, if I could solve that then perfect.

    Simple, stop playing country on it.
    In tune double stops don't matter in rock 😉😉😉😉

    Hmm. Must be Anderson sorcery... One pickup comes to mind though when I think of high output with sizzle: the Bill Lawrence humbucker on Nuno's Washburn.

    Shipping usually doesn't take very long so I imagine you'll get it well before X-mas.

    I had to try increasingly harder to supress my growing eagerness as the completion day got nearer because it started to feel like forever during the final month. Lol! Now it's your turn!

    Obviously I'm eager and excited to see the finished guitar but I'd rather not pressure them to get it to me and miss some minor flaw.
    It has taken me 7 yrs to win my legal battle, my reward being the guitar, and I've another year before the legal process completes so another month's wait for the guitar is no hardship. ☺☺☺

    I wasn't at all aware...7 yrs is looooong! No doubt a very costly fight. Anyhow, congratulations on the outcome.

    A surgical error left me with serious hearing loss.
    I've just had some newly released hearing aids which are amazing. The first set that don't ''pop'' when I play the guitar.

    you can't pressure us to finish a guitar, when it's done it's done, there are no shortcuts.

    The correct answer ☺
    I meant that I wouldn't nag for a specific date.
    As you said, it'll be done when its done. ☺☺☺☺
