I've owned this model for five years now. It's sounds are all beautiful to hear from jazz tones to paint peeling metal. I really do love it and it practically plays itself due to the wonderful neck and action. I did however, and still do from time to time, experience some very frustrating tuning stability issues. The G and B strings would get hung up in the nut alot when bending and the Maestro trem would cause it to fly out of tune from top to bottom if I even bumped it. I understand it's not a Floyd Rose locking trem but the player should at least be able to use it very gently when playing open chords on a clean amp setting. The next one I buy will have a fixed bridge.
