I keep saying I am all set buying more guitars, but I could not resist this one. My guitar teacher has the crazy FLY Parker, and so, because Im a jackass and loved the neck, I wanted one. This LP type is a lot more affordable and the neck is awesome. The STINGER humbuckers were replaced with some other crazy “boutique” pickups, as the seller told me. I don’t quite know what “boutique” means as it pertains to anything except a store-type, but WHO CARES anyway? I love the guitar and now it is part of my family.
