    nah .. basically i was introduced to this forum by another friend.. who also ordered a musicman with me...we are both in singapore. and our local distributor doesnt stock the guitars... so we kinda ordered em without fully getting to try em out intensively.

    but we are both very optimistic!

    in this forum i see alot of Axis and petrucci model owners.. but little luke owners..so i decided to ask about it.

    well i got myself a white luke with matching headstock!!! i hope it looks as good as on the website!

    any problems with your luke at all??? even tiny ones???

    No problems.
    In my opinion, the Luke is the most user specific.
    Some don't like the necks as much as the other EBMMs.
    I don't own one so I can't say too much!

    yea..i realised.... im asian so my hands are slightly smaller... yet the luke neck still feels so small at the first fret that it seems like a mid-scale guitar... and not 25.5

    very comfy guitar for me to play.... the SLVs are also very smooth... love em.
    i just hope mine turns up with no problems... eg neck ...trussrod....etc... my friend's jpm7 had a nasty finish crack hope its only for that particular model.

    ERNIEBALL if you guys happen to be working on a WHITE LUKE for SINGAPORE!!! PLEASE make it beautiful!!!

    I have the Luke II with piezo in butter cream. I love it!!!! Best guitar I have ever owned. I like strat style guitars though. I also like 12" radius's and EMG's so it seemed like a perfect choice. I can see where the neck shape would be a love it or hate it kinda thing.

    i got one too......the neck is GREAT. i lucked out & found one w/ a very flamed neck and headstock.
    they look better than the photos........
    i use to break d strings alot on it....til i sanded the saddle silky smooth w/ 600 grit....then 1000 grut sandpaper (sand across the saddle....not longways) ....and started putting big bends nut sauce lubricant on the saddle. also helps in the nut slots to stay in tune better.......
    i also recomend sticking w/ ernie ball strings on it....

    I got 3. Love them all. One (blue dawn 2002) has a neck noticeably smaller than the other 2. It's the most comfortable for me of the 3.

    White will look great with the black pickups and knobs. Good choice.

    I have a black sparkle w matching headstock. I only changed the bridge pup to an 81 because I hate 85's. I'm not a big fan of EMG's, but they sound great in this guitar.

    I love my Luke. I could probably manage just fine if it was my only guitar (well, except for country because it is hard to do fake pedal-steel bends with a floating trem). But, it is a versatile guitar that you will love. My current Luke is the 2nd one I have owned and I have had no problems with either of them.
