Awesome guitar!!

I kind of bought this guitar on a whim. I didn't really need another guitar but, how many is enough? I've seen these LTDs with the Gibson-type body and really liked them. A friend of mine has one very similar. I've always played strat-styles, LTD, Ibanez, Jackson, etc. Thought I'd give this one a chance. It came today and so far I really like it. The bottom of the body is a little heavy compared to what I'm used to. I really need to make sure I hold onto it if I'm seated while playing. The EMGs, 81/60s sound pretty much identical to the EMG "Het-Set" that I bought from Sweetwater and put into a Dean 350f. Nice and crunchy distortion/overdrive, and the cleans sound crystal clear, almost magical!! It's a beautiful instrument. It arrived in perfect condition and was set up exactly the way a guitar should be. I won't be doing a thing to it. Perfect. I think they even put fresh strings on it, though I'm not sure, They look new!! Really happy with my purchase and another great experience with the best in the business, Sweetwater!!
