These look good

Anyone owned a Enfield avenger 

Thanks 

Just tried an Enfield out in the Bass Gallery earlier today. It left me cold. Oh, a superb instrument, without a doubt, but it struck me that it was very much a professional tool to get the job done, any job at all. I didn't get any kind of vibe off it so while I'm sure it was worth the £3,000 asking price I was very happy to hand it back to the nice man in the shop to hang on the wall. For me, a Dingwall has that "modern" feel and style, just as versatile but seems to have mojo.

Looks like the pickups are available separately. 

Not sure if I'd want such a high-tech solution in the retro-looking package they're offering. I understand some people would like it, but I think I'd prefer them in a more adventurous design.

This one:

I mean, it's a beautiful piece of work. Looks and feels amazing, can't fault it and I'm sure I could play anything at all on it with those pickups, but I didn't feel like I wanted to.

Mind you, I really don't like lacquered necks so maybe that put me off a bit. I don't know why...
