Simply, a GREAT guitar!!!
Where to start? Flawless construction and finish, great setup out of the box (only a slight tweak needed for my style), and what sound!!!
First, the neck-it's cut about halfway between a Gibby slim taper and "baseball bat" neck profile, very comfortable and still meaty. I have average size hands, and it fits perfectly, with very little shoulder. "U" shape is pretty accurate in this case. Fretwork is as good as I've seen anywhere-literally flawless up and down the neck. Didn't need to adjust the truss rod at all, even after shipping-VERY stable, and solid feeling! Tuners are open-gear Grovers, and work nicely. I'm in no rush to replace them...
If you like 335s or jazz boxes, the size will be very comfortable to you. I personally like this size, even though I'm not a tall person-it just feels right to me. The guitar is a bit neck light, and wants to point upwards slightly more than most guitars when on a strap. Acoustically, this guitar is very loud and resonant even for a semi-solid, with good sustain, a recipe for great tone...
Plugged in, it's a bit brighter on the neck than your standard 'bucker, but still very full. Bridge pickup is also quite a bit brighter, but not harsh like a telecaster-think more of a P-90 tone without buzz and hum. Volume and tone controls work great (full-size pots!) and allow you to go from a very jazzy sound to classic country.
One thing to be aware about-the bridge on this guitar is a floating bridge like you would see on an ES-175-it WILL move if you play roughly (violin rosin or double sided tape usually cures this problem). The plus of this style bridge is the tone and feel you get, which is much more like a hollow-body than a solid body-there's a certain "snap" and feel to the strings that's not there on other guitars.
I wanted to originally buy a big-body jazz guitar, but also wanted to have something that's giggable for blues and rock gigs-this guitar can do it all, with style! I've played 5 gigs with this guitar in the last month (everything from a restaurant to bars to a festival!) and it's performed flawlessly. Even better, the tone is starting to open up, like a great guitar should... I'm glad I bought this guitar!!!
