It already arrived, less than 48h from UK - never had that before.
Anyway, HOLY FWCK... this may be the sweetest sounding Deluxe I ever had. Sings and screams and cries and moans, does it all. The tone is unbelievable, as is the neck. Totally effortless to play, pure joy. Just what I wanted and identical to the one I had ten years ago, with my favorite "Thin C" neck shape which is very much like nanner Pacers
The neck was tilted sideways, looks like the guy literally rocked it a bit too hard. Fortunately that was corrected within seconds, after slightly releasing the mounting screws, the strings pulled it back into the right position on their own.
The frets are quite worn up to the 9th fret or so, but no buzz and great action regardless. Still I'll refret it in the spring, I want that "like new" feel again.
This was my deal of the year for sure, very happy
