This was on sale at a local shop in Sydney's northern beaches. I walked by and visually it was striking. After 15 minutes of playing it, I bought it. Great playability but it has some "fight back" in it that make bends less easy, but still satisfying. Bigsby vibrato is awesome. And the controlled feedback I get when playing with my Peavey Delta Blues or Orange Rockerverb 50 is amazing. This thing rocks! At the same time, I'm getting the nicest clean jazzy tones through my JC120.
