When I first saw these I knew I had to have one. When I first saw one in person, I was disappointed, but I hadn't played it yet. Then I found a used one and played it. As usual, it had a crappy setup, so I tweaked as best I could in the store and then the guitar spoke to me. I fell in love and bought it (at a good price - still not cheap). It was after I got it home and finished fixing the setup that it truly revealed itself to me. What a divine instrument. This guitar is not for everyone - mostly due to price. Only a few may appreciate the quality of the build and the minor details that make this guitar so superb. I knew I got a deal on it, but only later realized how great a deal. It plays like butter and sounds fantastic. I didn't need this guitar, it was an impulse buy and I am glad I listened to my heart.
