You know I didn't catch that before...it does have what looks like a knot. I actually saw this guitar in GC on Saturday when I was in there. I bought a Studio Deluxe IV I think it was with a BB 2 in the neck and a 3 in the bridge. Guitar was fine, but I didn't really care for the BB2 in the bridge. Got to thinking about the Traditional above and called them Sunday about doing a return. They told me the Traditional had sold later in the day on Saturday, but they just put out a Classic if I were interested in that model. Well, by the time I got down there the buyer from the day before had returned the traditional.
The guitar sounds fantastic, and IMO the BB2 is much better suited as a bridge pickup. The BB1 in the neck is exceptionally nice too. I am getting the action, intonation, and neck adjusted now. I prefer heavier strings, and pretty high action so there is a breaking in period to get through first. Great guitar that I am glad I got the chance to get. It was on sell for $1859 which I am guessing is a pretty fair deal for a new 2017 model.
