Congrats- v. nice but your pics are a bit out of focus.

If possible I'd like to see some outdoor shots in overcast conditions to get a better look at that gain and brown finish.

How does it play?

I see it had a pick guard on it.
Looks WAY better without it.

Seeing the electrics in yours I took a look at mine.
Lol, mine look ancient compared to yours but then there is over a decades gap between mine and yours.

Nice guitar, is the sound brighter with the maple top? I have the same guitar, but is a mahogany top. Also, why did they stop giving cases with these? Mine is a 2006 and came with the hardshell case, but I hear they come with bags now.

the all mahogany studios came with a hardshell but the maple top units came with a gig bag back in 2009 according to the MF web site.

Looks very nice.

Made some changes to my old Gibson Studio (all mahogany), as I think the black speed dials and pickgard made the finish look mushy. Similar result to yours:

(Sorry another LONG day so this is a night shot again...)

Testing the "Peter Green" mod it works perfectly and adds a nice extra level of control to the output.

Enjoy. I just bought one myself. I changed my pickgaurd to a 5 ply Gibson, and thought it looked much nicer. Matched the bell better.

The Maple top is so much nicer than the mahogany top IMO.

I am a fan of the satin/faded finish. The wood tends to resonate better when not bound by multi-layers of lacquer.

I have to agree, The "Peter Green" mod is also another reason I purchased a Worn as they seem to work better with the reverse polarity feedback for extra sustain.
I may refinish it in a lighter wood finish someday but for now its just singing...

Update heres (FINALLY) a day photograph
