This guitar is amazing! Straight out of the box, set up perfectly with a nice low action that is fast and clean, thanks tech guy or girl as the case may be. The finish is great! I chose it from the pictures on the website because it was heavy and had a small knot in the wood like a spot, which is great because the sound is like a snarling dog on a heavy chain with a worn collar...it's gonna get loose...great service thanks to Ian and "the other guy" that corrected my email address fated I had entered it wrong...Doh! , email was sent,confirmed delivery and WOW!!! Beware Of Dog ! Get em Spot !
