haven't owned a guitar with a good tremolo in a while, nice to have that again

really love the pickups too! the bridge pickup is super biting and has like 0 low end, and the neck one is basically what I want a guitar to sound like

also, that bit of wood on the tailpiece is the rug that ties the room together

You might want to play with the pickup heights and see how that balances the sound for individual pickups and how they blend and you'll be amazed at the range of options that gives you.  Don't forget that applies to each side of the pickup too! This is equally important for basses. It's a complex blend of pickups, strings and your fingers that makes a style unique!
