This is a delight of a guitar, one of the early models (which were heavier with slimmer necks). It is eminently playable with a smooth rich tone from both pick ups. In full coil mode the tones available range from woman tone through to Santana lead, with everything in between. The push-push coil tap cleans up the tone wonderfully, giving an almost strat-like sound with both pickups selected. Despite it's age (I have had it since 1989) it is still my main "go to" guitar.
