That's an awesome colour. How is it? Are there switching options for the triple?

Yeah, it's just a glorified HSS configuration.
1st - two coils of the triple-bucker
2nd - the three coils (sound like second position on HSS strat)
3rd - the middle coil (closest to JM pickup)
4th - neck pickup and single coil from the triple-bucker
5th - JM pickup

I didn't really like it when I tried it out.

I wasn't sure about the colour at first, but it's grown on me and now I really like it. It's as dsn says on the switching. Personally I'm quite happy with the variety of tones and it plays well enough.

It arrived with three springs, screwed in tight so the Strat-style 6-point floating bridge is tied flat on the deck, wich probably makes it easier to tune up in the shop, except that it kept going out of tune until I yanked the strings a bit. I've slackened off the claw screws and taken a spring out but I'm not sure whether to keep it as a floater or tie it up, as I already have two Strats

It needs a little setting up, I've done the intonation at the current saddle heights but the action is not as low as my gigging Strat (but then the top E string on the Strat needs to come up a bit prevent it choking on bends around 17th fret and above). The nut is a little tight.

The tuner casings are not as well finished as I'd like, they look OK but the corners are slightly sharp.

Well done Nick, beat me to it. I honestly thought I'd be the first here to buy the Marauder, been toying with the idea since I played one this summer.
Looks great, very versatile, arguably more so than a Strat.
