NGD: 2020 Bourbon Burst R8

Arrived a couple of days ago, a 2020 Bouron Burst R8. Quite flamey for an R8 with some mineral streaks, just a whisker over 9lbs.

Last R8 I had was a 2016 so the unpotted Custombuckers sound more lively and open, the narrow tall frets feel nice, I think I prefer them to med/jumbo. What's with the new wiring harness? The tone control doesn't; do much 10-5 then kicks in all of a sudden?
