What is your opinion of this product?
Honestly I got a steal of a deal. It was an open box 'scratch & dent' but there isn't a thing wrong with it. Right out of the box it was set up nicely, just needed tuning. Plays and sounds great. Though the Roland VG pickup has some nice bennies, I'm really quite happy playing it as a straight-up Strat. Jammed along with Rory Gallagher last night - we had nearly identical tones! (my Quilter amp had something to do with that)
