Awesome guitarI love this guitar. It's looks fantastic and plays even better than it looks. The push/pull switches that make the humbuckers single coil pickups give me a much wider range of sound, and the way the Bigsby tremelo is set up with rollers on the bridge keep it in tune after banging and yanking on it for hours on end.

Long time finger style player.
First blushI was with my wife visiting her brother. He has an older Ibanez hollow body that he wanted help re-stinging (i've never seen strings that old). After helping with the new strings, I played for a few minutes. I was playing though a Line-6 pedal, and a Crate amp (not the cleanest sound). My wife was thrilled to hear me playing with an electric voice though (I have been a strict acoustic player for the past 20 years). She hadn't heard anything from this phase of my music.
My wife is great! This needs to be mentioned.
She thought I should research and buy an Electric guitar! My Response? Awh... Do I have to?
A credit card number and a couple weeks later my new T3-B shows up.
It's a very handsome guitar. It plays very well. It's a bit heavier than expected, but the voice is where it shines. The number of possible tone variations is what dew me to this guitar. I played it for about two hours yesterday through my Mackie board and monitors. It's sound is hard to pin down. It's like having every electric guitar you ever wanted in one instrument.
The one thing that bugs me about this guitar is that the top isn't solid. It's a veneer over fiber board. I would think that in this price range you should get a solid top. I know why they are doing it. The fiber board is dead flat so it's easy to veneer. It's also stable in the way that quilted maple isn't.
All in all.. I'm happy so far. I will post again in a couple months with more of a players review.
