OK, it is officially cleared to be played now. Get to it!

Y'know, it is so cool that Sweetwater shows you actual pictures of the guitar you receive.

Nice guitar!

Yes! I agree; looks the part, thought of replacing the pickup surrounds? These Studios or Tributes are really underrated. I sold my 2014 LP Traditional and now play a 2010 50's Tribute with p90's. I know some folk won't believe me but it's a better guitar sound wise.

The rings need to stay because it is an HP (removable pickguard via pickup ring mechanism) however, very thin chrome rings sit on top of the thick creme rings so I could just remove the "chrome tops"

Nice! I've been thinking about adding a switch plate and cap to mine, but haven't made up my mind yet.
