General What is your overall opinion of this product? I have owned many and played many more semi hollow bodied guitars over the last 23 years. This particular guitar stands out amongst the best of them. I am not going to say that it is the absolute best. However, it is well worth more than one costs. It has a comfortable weight and balance, and the fit and finish on the one I received is spectacular. The neck is slightly thicker than the 60s shaped Gibson necks which makes it very comfortable to play. The upper register is easy to get at. It has incredible sustain and the quality of the Super 58s in it are a sonic joy. The Super 58s have become my favorite pickup in a semi hollow so far. Not to knock Gibson or other pickups but the Super 58 seems to my ear to have a creamier sound that is spot on for jazz, blues and fusion. It will handle high gain just fine as well. These are not high output pickups so they do not have the trebly harshness that overwound PAFs normally have. Great guitar for the money spent!
