I love it, it's super light. The pickups are really wound heavy and super bright ( I lowered them so they would be easier to control ). The tone control is really linear and doesn't bring up the bass when I want to take the treble down to get bluesy. I've owned about every Fender model and a 58 Gibson ES330 and a 500 unit re-release Les Paul double cut Special. I've been playing about 60 years and this guitar has everything, locking tuners, simple controls, great tone and a really stable tremolo. I do a lot of bending and really wear frets, which the stainless steel frets should cure. 'Probably the best bang for the buck!
