1) Neck wise .. not as smooth as Ibanez Jem 7v and ESP MII ... but this is not a big issue to me.
2) Tone wise .. test it with dusty ross, fender mustang at a music shop .. I like the tone for both clean and overdrive/gain .. neck tone is also creamy for clean as expected from a SD 59.
3) Compared it with my explorer on overdrive .. it seems that the EMG sound louder and a bit fatter .. the SD 59 cleaner/clearer .. but I'm not complaining ... just stating facts ...
I have been wanting this guitar since 1996 .. so its time to check my guitar fund ...
