I am a huge fan of guitar, not a pro player but a huge fan and have played a Lot of guitars in my life. This thing is amazing. It is kind of heavy, the set up is amazing and it stays in tune..I am impressed with that.. The neck is smooth and silky with no finish on it, the tuners are good. No dead spots on it, anywhere. I have not even plugged it in , no amp yet, but I can only guess the only thing it needs is a little more oomph in the pickup department, but as good as this thing is it might not even need that.
