So, What Changed?
The body is made of solid Mahogany, for a deep rich tone not found in the original 1303/U2. The string through body bridge means faultless intonation and better string attack - an improvement over the original rosewood bridge. The neck profile is improved with a comfortable C-shape, as well as coupling it to the body with a newly engineered neck joint system for longer sustaining notes. The individual machine heads are another upgrade over the original.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
I got one with a deep discount and I was very pleased. Unfortunately you have to remove the neck to adjust it from the bottom. I figure you can carve out a section of the body at the base of the neck if it becomes an issue with you, for quick on the fly neck adjustments. The lip stick pickups are clear and distinctive, and the body is very light weight. The frets are very good, with just a hint of sharpness on the edges, but nothing too radical at all. The neck is extremely comfortable to play.
