    It's me again. :)

    My newest is a 2016 CC#24. 8lbs. 8oz. I was worried it would sound like my other guitars. I couldn't of been more wrong. This one is hands down the best sounding and playing guitar I have. If anyone can tell me for sure what pickups are in this thing I would appreciate it. From most of what I've read they are Burstbucker 3's. They sound awesome.

    The aging is pretty light. Some checking on the top and quite a bit of buckle rash on the back but over all it doesn't look beat up. The board isn't super dark but I like it. I wish I had some better pictures. I think it looks better in person.

    Conspiracy theory - John is buying up all the good high end guitars. Once he owns them all, they will be portioned out to us mortals as John sees fit. :D

    Thanks freebyrd! When I first plugged it in I was shocked at how great it sounds. I was really worried it wouldn't be different. It's so different.
