I've had my Liger for a few weeks now - stock with brass plates. The tuners are pretty decent - no issues holding tune. Neck and middle pickups are pretty decent - fairly nice Jerry tone, bridge pickup is so-so. Tone pots have a little bit of scratch, but nothing bad (kind of wish they were wired for neck and middle/bridge rather than middle and bridge). Switches are all decent quality so far. Overall build is good, mine had one small blemish on the upper horn (not really visible) and a small binding flaw near the headstock. Frets are nice and dressed well. The neck thickness is between a strat and a les paul, not big enough to bother me, but definitely thicker than a strat.
Long wait, but worth it. Overall a good guitar for the price. I'd recommend. And the OBEL is awesome with my Q-tron. Hope this helps.
