good bang for the buck
I picked up one of the heaviest ones available here at 8 pounds 14 ounces. My only complaint is the fret board isnt seamlessly joined to the neck on one side, there isnt the smooth seamless feel you'd expect on the side of the neck and I can see the flaw clearly running up and down the entire neck.
Otherwise for the money its an incredible, guitar that has good weight and the humbuckers are hot and heavy.
The reason the price is so cheap is that the finish isnt glossy, but the matte satin finish is smooth and doesnt stick to your hands.
The guitar looks classy and at 1/3 the cost of a Standard model its a screaming value.
Im not too picky and prefer to save two thousand dollars and play this guitar rather than spend $2,700 on a Standard.
