The friendly UPS fella gave me this today...http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd489/Bydytron/IMG_20131205_135945_zps7ae6e89d.jpg
Nope, not an empty box, this was in it...http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd489/Bydytron/IMG_20131205_140058_zps9e4d3221.jpg
And in that was this.http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd489/Bydytron/IMG_20131205_140130_zpsb51e1dc4.jpg
Yep, MiJ Charvel So Cal, brand spanker, Candy Blue. The blue is much nicer IRL than it looked in the stock photos (as usual). I've been lusting after one of these since they came out, so when Richtone announced they had the last ever MiJ stock in, I had to.
And yes, it plays as well as everyone says. The neck is Ibanez Wizard size, but more of a C than a D. Fuck it's comfy. It needs a bit of tweaking to get it how I like it, but largely it plays very well out of the box, no rattling or crazy-high action. Band practice can't come soon enough!
