Yup . . . it's a top-notch axe, and I'm loving it all the way!! Like you, I also really like the LP/Tele hybrid design and look. BTW--does anyone know for certain what the direct drop-in locking tuners for the SDXT are? I did a lot of Googling, and although the mini-Schallers were mentioned many times, the stock tuners on the SDXT don't have a drill screw configuration . . . . just a stabilizer pin setup ala USA Strats and Teles.
