Great overall guitar. Made in Indonesia, but judging by this guitar, they have been trained well. Inspected thoroughly, I could not find a flaw on this guitar. The quilted maple top looks even more amazing in person. The neck fits the pocket perfectly and the frets are level. The ZR trem works great. Yes, this guitar did blow me away when I received it. Even better than I expected. Plays like a dream. Pickups are good, but not great (at this price you don't expect high end pickups). Definitely a great value!
