I am a fan of offset guitars, I have 3 jags and 1 jazzy, but this Strato brings me in places where I haven't been before. A strong and full sound on the rhythm and plenty of choice with the 5 position selector. On the lead you can do incredible things with the minimum fatigue, she plays for you! I still don't have finished to experiment the sounds with her, considering I am playing her with a deluxe reverb 65. This is great to use live or in studio, a professional instrument.
