This guitar is rock steady. For the money you cannot go wrong. It played super, right out of the box. Before receiving it, I thought I would have to change the pickups. I was wrong. These pickups are just fine for anything out there. The guitar is thin, light and beautiful. This is a keeper. I want to give a special Thank you to Mr. Luke Herian for all he did to get me set up with this ax. Sweet Water is my go to place for all my music needs. Thanks again Luke.
