A non pro's review
I am not a pro and only play for my own enjoyment, as such I have a somewhat limited exposure to other guitars so don't take this as an experts opinion.
The guitar right out of the box was great, no flaws and tuning was right on the mark (I'm sure a thanks to Sweetwater's checks should be noted). I currently have only played this guitar through a Fender Mustang V amp, but I love the tones that this guitar produces. This being a 22 fret as compared to my 24 fret guitar I did notice that playing songs that have notes up in it's upper range are a not as easy as on the 24 fret guitar, but that is just my opinon. I would definitely redcommend this guitar.
