Originally ordered through A# Music Co. in Renton, WA, who were the number 1 VA dealer in the nation when I got mine. The guitar originally came with EMG pickups and I was able to get an 89 in the bridge with a push-pull pot on the tone control to split it. I also ordered the black-out look that Lyle Long at A# termed the stealth guitar. The only mod to the guitar is a pickup change, performed by A#. Lindy Fralins were installed (including a custom-wound bridge pickup) and the guitar was shielded. I still have the original fretboard protector and case. The bridge is the original Valley Arts-logod Kahler.
