OK, So this year I got a craving for one of these, and I don't know why. Perhaps it was retroactive craving, because now that I have one, I'm loving it and wouldn't want to do without it. I've used it on every track I've worked on since it arrived, bullying its way into the studio and pushing the other electric guitars aside.
I have replaced the tuners with Steinberg Gearless ones, partly because I've always wanted to try them, and partly because the stock tuners were probably the weakest component out of the box. Tuning the guitar up didn't feel as solid and reliable as I felt it should be. Also - the black tuners are sexier than the old chrome ones.
