I have had this steel for as long as I remember, and it rocks. I have changed the pickup and the pots to get the famous country boowah-sound. Sounds great with valve amps. Easy to play, fun to play, easy to repair. The only bad thing is the tuning machines, because they are nylon string guitar tuning machines. There's really nothing more to say.. It's a basic steel guitar, nothing else. Needs two more strings in my opinion..
