Even after reading scores of reviews I could not believe the range of tone coming from one instrument. Between this guitar and my modeling amp I can get anything from mellow, full bodied acoustic to jazz to heavy metal. I also play it through a GR-55 guitar synth. It performs better than my Fender/Roland GC-1. This is my third and last electric. It does it all. The neck is a dream, easy to finger and very fast. The finish is perfect -- my wife who has an artist's eye has commented that it is beautiful.
The only drawback is that they are rare. Prior to purchasing I looked all over California to buy local. Nothing from San Francisco to San Diego. I went with Sweetwater after an aborted purchase and return through another on-line store. I quickly learned my lesson. Not all mail order companies are created equal. I'm now a loyal Sweetwater customer for life.
