    One side of 5 is purely singlecoil tones. The other is full (bridge) humbucker plus a few other series settings as well as a neck+middle in series in the other outer position.

    I think that's 2 delivered and 4 pending. The end is in sight!

    This guitar - despite having my usual pointy and/or black aesthetics - is so vastly different from my other guitars that it's hard to tell how much the solid ebony contributes to the overall end result. The Hipshot bridge has a steel block, so that sure adds some snap and brightness, body is black korina and the pickups are Alt8/FullShred and Jazz/59 hybrds w/ A8 magnets. The only thing I know from the bunch is the 59 LOL. The neck itself is super slick, feels dense and solid (kinda expected from ebony) and despite being a chunky boi ( I think you could make two Ibby Wizards from this one LOL) plays really smothly. Sure, feels unusual after all the Jacksons I have, but doesn't require me to fight with it.

    Sound wise it "sustains for days", the palm muted triplets ar razor sharp (F yeah!), would describe the overall sound as angry, but the top end is silky smooth and not fizzy as you'd expect when hearing "angry". But again, I can't put my finger on how much each component contributes as these are things I have no previous experience with.

    Never asked Mr. O about that... But given how much I like the sound of it so far, I don't think that those bits are missing.

    Got a tracking # on mine too, last week. Still showing "Origin post is preparing shipment."
    21st century supply chain...
    Probably a bunch of packages standing by, waiting until there's full container's worth.

    Feels great to know they're in the system though. Sure looking forward to arrival day.
