Great guitar! I bought the Nordic Ice finish and it is flawless as far as I can tell. Guitar came setup pretty well but I made some adjustments after restringing (9.5-48 progressive tensions) and it plays very well. The EMG's are as expected, you either love them or hate them. I will probably replace all of the pots, wiring, toggle, jack, caps and put in some Seymour Duncan passive pups at some point. The scale length is comfortable to play, at least for me, because I do not have long arms; you wouldn't think that .150 shorter than 24.75 would make a big difference but it does. As far as the "baseball bat" neck many talk of, I didn't find it overly thick. Yes, it's not a slim 60's style neck but I have small hands and can play it as well as my guitars with slimmer neck profiles-reminds me of my first guitar in the 80's, a Hondo Destroyer. I have owned numerous guitars over the years and this one's build quality is up there with more expensive guitars and better than what Gibson has been putting out with their non Custom Shop guitars; I had a 2016 Explorer with crap electronics, a badly cut nut and a couple of divots on the side of the fretboard, "new" from Gibson-their QC has really gone south the last several years. Most importantly, the Blood Eagle is a well built guitar with a good neck, fretboard and fret finish and electronics can be tailored to your taste.
