Refund received. New body ordered from WD music. No chances being taken. Will need to do the finish myself...but that’s cool. Net I will have lost nothing but my time to paint the new one. Phew.

Looks from this that you might be able to get the GST back?

All of the buttons are the whole point. I have a tiny handheld camera that shoots nearly as good video. But every time I need to change a setting I have to wade through a hundred options on a menu, I can't see the screen in sunlight, i can't plug in proper microphones, it doesn't have good handles, etc, etc. Also the little one overheats constantly. This sucker solves all that fiddly shit in one go.

Wrong thread but mostly on topic.

It did. Christ, that took a full week. Well, it sounds bloody nice but I've already exhausted my repertoire. Didn't think to buy strings so can't have my ritual clean / restring tonight. Action is a bit high.

In other news, I've just bought this on a bit of a whim. Interested to give it a go. All the cork-sniffery CS Strat stuff has been ultimately a bit underwhelming. Just thought I'd buy a decent model and a reasonable price and give it a shot.

I recall they did an ash one called Sienna Burst or something like that. I always liked that one. Would typically have avoided this model because it wasn't 'vintage spec' but sod it. Never bothered Jeff Beck.
