After spending the evening with her - I am pleased with this purchase. The playability, fit & finish are perfect. The only adjustment I had to make was to lower the neck pup - it was waaaay too close to the strings and made the pup sound distorted. An easy adjustment that made her much more to my liking and sounded much better. The neck feels good, she holds tune well & came with a gig bag even though I already had a hard case. For the price it was worth it. This one doesn't appear to hold barn burner interest on the forum so I won't post on this one any further unless someone has a question. :)


My recent swath of buying cheap guitars is now over. I'm eyeballing a flamed top Les Paul that is definitely NOT CHEAP so time to kick back and enjoy my brothel. Evening boyz B)
