What can I say. I love guitars and I own several. They all have their tone and personality, but for the first time I am left wondering if I need any other guitar. This is pure magic. It sings - literally. When I first tried it in the shop, it was on a quick visit to get something else, so I didn't even plug it in. The sustain was tremendous. You could hear the tone raw and while the shop was not that busy, it wasn't exactly quiet either. I played this through a Mesa Boogie Mark V 25 and mostly clean. The tone was exceptional. When I got it home I played it through my Orange Rockerverb 50, a Vox Night Train, and my Peavey Delta Blues - all driven tones and this thing was singing. Went through a few distortion and overdrive pedals into these amps and the controlled distortion was not shrill at all - again it just sang.
