I have one. It is a great guitar. It is the nicest Epi I have for sure (It is also the most expensive). Fit and finish is almost flawless. The only issue I have found were two pin head sized errors where they missed putting black on the sides of the f-hole. I have never had a fender scale guitar and wondered if I would have any issues. I do not and it plays really easy. The sound is brighter than my les paul but not in a bad way. I don't mind the Bigsby (no tuning issues) and I think it balances the guitar nicely but I realize people usually either like them or hate them, with no in between. It also has a good amount of sustain, which is surprising for a hollow body (I have a 61 reissue Casino that I have compared it to). I'm really pleased that I took the chance with pre-ordering and would do it again. My recommendation is to run, not walk, to your closes retailer or computer to pick one up.

Congrats. I will be curious on your thoughts. Have you played either the Epi or Gibson Johnny A?

Not quite a blind date. I assume you have seen pics. More like online dating. Now you get to see if the pics are accurate and what her personality is really like.
