I've been contemplating buying one of these fine looking guitars since I realized the other guitar I wanted wasn't going to work out. The only problem with this is they only have a limited quantity in the store buy me and since tomorrow is the biggest shopping day of the year I expect they will all be gone by the time I can get to the local GC. So what I would like to know is:
active or passive pick-ups (from what I could tell they were passive but, I'm a noob at that)
what's the back of the neck like (glossy finish? wood with a slight finish?)
what's the neck as a whole like (ibanez type neck Les paul type neck?)
how smooth are the frets and fretboard?
and weight

thanks in advance for any help
It's got a glossy neck, a little thinner than a gibbo 60's neck, passive pickups (Duncan Jazz neck/JB bridge), very smooth F/B and frets, and pretty heavy (it is solid mahogany though).
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
heavier than a strat, not sure if it's as heavy as a paul though.
Great guitar.
Was going to buy one but I didn't have enough money on me at the time :[
The pickups are passive, '59 in the neck, JB in the bridge
The neck is painted and glossy.
Good luck with getting there in time to get one

I've found they don't like haggling too much at my local GC

Life is too short to worry about this crap.

Hm could I haggle my way into a case or would they just be like GTFO at GC?

Most likely the GTFO response.
I don't believe in signatures. Ah, sh...
