    I actually like the look of the guitar. I think it's missing a pickup, though. BTW, good name.

    Enjoy your new guitar.

      Do you like it? Because that's all that really matters. If you're looking to spend money, forums like these will spend you into the poorhouse. They'll either tell you that you have to buy instruments worth thousands to be any good, or that you have to have 900 different cheap guitars to "cover all the bases". Both are bull****************. Play what you like. Tell everybody else to **************** off.

        You probably don't need a new nut. Just a tech that can set up the instrument for you. They can file the nut to accept the new string gauge. The only reason to need a new nut is if you decide to go back down on string gauge and the strings rattle in the oversized grooves. The tuners are probably ok too. They likely need to be tightened. Also should be part of a setup.

          if that's the case, then yes, you need new tuners.

              It was mentioned that a lot of hyperbole was cooked up when this guitar first hit the streets and only one of them was sold. Is there possible collector's value down the road? I'd consider that before taking it to a twenty buck hack.

                mom & pop store in my town had one a couple months back. Not sure if they still have it though and I don't remember how much he was asking for it. So those were actually sold by wal-mart??

                    And also:

                    I took it to GC, got the input jack fixed, and instead of having the nut sanded I just decided to use thinner strings (I am now running .52-.10) and they fit perfectly

                    Next on my list: replace tuners

                                My take on this guitar? I find it hilarious that this is the guitar you play when just last week you were advising someone on the purchase of a new Les Paul. The new LPs are a waste of money and sound nothing like an LP should? Please...
