After ordering this, the next few days went slow as possible. Thankfully FedEx delivered the guitar a day early with the free shipping!
First off, the finish on this thing blows you away as soon as you open the case. My favorite part is the gold aluminum pickgaurd, looks awesome on the limited desert sand finish. The gold hardware really tops off the looks if you ask me, some people don't like it, I love it.
After playing it for the first time it was obvious to me that some adjustments needed to be made in terms of the guitars setup/action. Little bit of string buzz out of the box but nothing crazy. The only annoying part is that because this is a vintage style, your only (logical) access to the truss rod is by removing the neck. I guess that's to be expected when ordering a vintage style instrument so just be aware.
Otherwise, guitar plays awesome and has really nice sound! Don't get scared away by the fact that it's a mim start, this is definitely a quality instrument.
