I recieved this guitar for Christmas in 2013. In summary, the neck is very nice and feels natural and accomodating. The fretboard is a dream to use. The tone of the guitar is very versatile, but sways more to the twangy tele side. The neck pickup sounds nice, it's a standard Strat pickup from what I believe, and the coil tap can be used on this pickup to get a very clean sound, which sounds amazing with a good amp and some good reverb. The humbucker at the bridge is just a standard humbucker which sounds decent. The controls are decent, but the pickup selector is quite difficult to get used to. Overall, this is a great guitar.
