Absolutely Amazing!

So I was in the market for a new guitar and researched for over a year finally ended up buying this. It was this or and artist package PRS 513. I have never been a fan of lacquered necks, and always wanted something with an unfinished neck and boy does this sweet guitar hit it on the money. First of all the guitar is absolutely stunning, pictures do not do it justice. Second, the play-ability is like no other I have ever put my fingers on. Third, it sounds like a million bucks. I was a little concerned buying a guitar that took a battery but man this thing just sings. The decibel boost is fantastic for pushing your valve amp over the top. You can tell as soon as you open the very nice included case that the attention to detail is second to none. Perfect balance, stays in tune even when bombing the the tremolo arm. Waited awhile for them to build this but it was totally worth it and at half the price of the PRS it is a winner. So happy with this purchase, covers virtually every tone you could want. As always exceptional customer service from Ben Robinson and the Sweetwater team. Buy it. Now. You will not be disappointed.
