Nice looking guitar - congrats! Enjoy!  8)

Alnico IIs seem like a great idea to me. 3 of my 4 electric guitars have had upgraded pickups - all with Alnico II instead of V and all have been a huge improvement. Just my own personal taste of course - tone is highly subjective.

That joint looks good! A work of art, if I do say so myself.

Thanks guys, Yes the EC1000 seem to be a very well made guitar especially for the price, with ESP locking tuners & the Seymours's standard, you don't see many bad words said about this model.... I am loving it 8)
I sold my Gibson  60's Special Tribute SG to buy this, I just did not get along with the P90's & even though I take good care of my guitars the flexy neck on the Gibson worried me as well, it seemed rather fragile......
The best part was I sold the SG for more than I paid for it so that was a bonus ;D

Great looking guitar! Congrats. If Alnico II's work for Slash, they can work for anyone!
