    Junk

    The most disappointing guitar purchase I've made in 50 years. The tone is pretty good, thus a half star, but the rest just feels and looks wrong. I felt like I was playing a hunk of Home Depot plywood with strings. It's too light for one thing. I know the trend is for weight relief and lighter guitars, but you've got to have some weight to give you something to hold on to. I HATE the HP neck. Be sure you go to a shop and TRY it before you buy one! They've got a very different feel to them. Not my cuppa tea, for sure. I thought the finish was el cheapo. The back looked like a coat of matte black plastic paint had been sprayed on. And don't get me started on the really, really tacky silver tone controls and truss rod cover. The tone controls look like sewing-kit thimbles. If I were to keep it I'd replace those immediately, but there's so much else wrong with this model that it's going back to Sweetwater. Thankfully they have a good return policy.
