General What is your overall opinion of this product? I own 25 guitars from USA Custom shop to Asian. This guitar needed new strings (.013 - .062) and an attempt at intonation. Bought it as a scratch and dent. No major issues. String height was fine. String tree is a major cause of tuning headaches. I will add a longer screw and relieve the angle. As can be read elsewhere, bridge does not allow accurate intonation at the position it's fixed at. However, I don't expect to be playing this guitar much above the 7th fret. Plays well with a light touch strung B to B. I like the humbucker. The two single coils look nice, but don't add that much. I may try a lighter string gauge to see if I can get the intonation to work. Fit and finish is excellent, I really love the neck and overall feel of the guitar.
