To start with, this is just a phenominal looking piece of gear. Everything has been reliced, right down to the washer on the input jack! The finish as well. I don't know how they accomplished the task, but it just sings the blues right outa' the box. The semi hollow body paired with a set-in mahogany neck really makes this baby sing, and i mean for miles. The sustain is incredible. 5 Stars, easy.
