Well I bought one off eBay recently and it came on Thursday, finally got to play it this evening.

Seems nice enough, I'll take some photos over the weekend.

Now some photos...











...it's a 3-piece body but quite subtly joined so reasonably attractive. Plays nicely, pickups better than expected.

I dunno I've got a green SG I quite like and that green HM Idol is pretty cool.

Seems to play nicely but I'm a sausage fingered philistine so what do I know.

I haven't done any setup as it came in 100% playable clean condition. I didn't even bother restringing it yet but I will when I get time.

The square edged SEC 'shelf' feels a bit odd and isn't as nice as the neck through version on my EC29s, but then it wasn't really going to be.

I know exactly what you mean...my n3 neck is good,but the through-neck and feel of my ec36 neck is just something else!!!
(although imo it would be even better without the paint!!)

So that you can paint your own colour.
