Just like single P90s, good tones here require specific settings. Now my fingers can see the positions without me having to peer over the enormous body.

Have had GAS for a semi for a while now, The T386 is on my radar along with a few others, seems like such a lot of quality guitar at an amazing price point :D

But not sure whether it's worth holding out so I can save a bit more a get a higher spec'd model. Thoughts?

Same, it sure looks lovely! I prefer block inlays and gold hardware... don't know whether not having that would bother me or not :think:

My T486 got here yesterday. Was surprised by how much gain I can throw at it before it gets out of control. Wondering how it'd handle higher output pickups, I have a spare BKP Ragnarok lol.
