This guitar looks great, it has a very pretty elegance to it. This does not however hide any faults in sound quality or standard of finish. The finish of this guitar is second to none that I have encountered inmore than 30 years of experience. I looked closely and could not find a single flaw, the binding, which seems to be all over the guitar is stunning and again flawless. The inlay on the fretboard is of the same quality and standard. The pickup's are more than adequate, quite good infact, they give a range of sounds that is quite wide and versatile, the neck position is especially sweet and smooth. The neck feels superb, with a great action for all styles of playing. One very useful quirk I found - when both pickups are selected [middle position] each volume control will act as a master volume control at the off position, very useful for killing your sound at the end of a song...... COOL, so you only need to roll off one pot. All in all a very cool, looking, sounding, playable guitar at a "SO WORTH IT" price. Buy 1, I did, WOW!
