Great Sound & Incredible Value !
This guitar is above and beyond my quality expectations for the price range. The specs just don't give a hint at what beautiful tones the solid 1 pc Spruce top over laminated flame maple can produce.
It arrived in perfect condition, already set up, and ready to play "as is" thanks to Sweetwaters pre shipping evaluation.(thanks S/W!).
It is absolutely flawless, from the jumbo sized body made of fine tonewoods, to the rock solid 3 pc. neck that's just a shave bigger than a slim-taper.
The "fit & finish" are both simply perfect, the fretwork superbly done with no fret ends to be felt anywhere.
Playability is top shelf with an action height that is fantastically low for a 1 pc. saddled guitar.
The appointments are equally nice, the jazz/blues voiced DeArmond Rythym Chief "monkey on a stick" pickup is clear and articulate, the rosewood bridge and saddle are correctly cut, and a spare un-notched saddle is included in the case.
To my surprise, the string nut is cut to perfection as well.
It comes in a (Canadian) TKL Hardshell Case, that is as nice as any I own.
I highly recommend this guitar for anybody wanting an extremely good value in a guitar that's perfect for Jazz, Blues, and '50s "Rock & Roll" !
