Definitely a keeper for the $! This unique guitar came to me after being back ordered right before Christmas! Thanks to my sales engineer John Short! Finally got a chance to plug it in after a couple of days as I've been too busy to give it a proper listen. I'll say it again, very unique guitar! Out of the box it was in tune but after playing a bit I realized the strings haven't been stretched at all. The neck is a modified "C" with no edges at all and no buzz anywhere! The fretwork was flawless! I wish the radius was closer to 10" but it'll do. The back of the neck is perfect as I usually end up refinishing most of my necks for that barely finished wood feel. The pickups were a nice surprise. The bridge was a typical ceramic magnet pickup. Little harsh but smooth enough. The neck is perfect though! And when you combine the 2 you get a semi-passable tele twang. The electronics are a bit of a different animal as there is some bleed through from the other pickup when you turn the bridge vol all the way down. Plus the grounding is horrible! Buzz like crazy if you don't stay in contact with the metal parts! So a couple of fixes are needed. The grounding issue, the tuners might have to be replaced(as its having a hard time staying in tune to my satisfaction.) I need to fix the wiring and someday I might put a different configuration of controls in to split the pickups. Excellent guitar for the money and a real keeper! Once it's all setup and molded to my liking it'll be perfect! Except the fingerprint machine chromed metal pick guard! All good though! Thank you again Sweetwater for an awesome/flawless purchase! Looking forward to doing business again with you!
