    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

    Pretty, but not my thing. I've got no chops for a jazzbox.

      I don't have the chops for that kind of guitar either... if I did though the price seems reasonable!

        I like it, but I would feel like a douchebag playing it, since I can't really play....

              I would never use the piezo pickup, but it looks like a nice enough archtop.

                  Cool guitar, I like the inclusion of a piezo, and it looks like it can be blended with the magnetic pick-up as well.

                      I love it but there are a couple of things I don't like.

                      I can't imagine the piezo sounding anywhere near as good as the magnetic pickup. If you're going to blend it with the magnetic pickup, you might as well just label the blend knob "suck level".

                      It doesn't look like the saddle is compensated. On a $1500 guitar, that is ridiculous.

                        First impression? I like that quite a bit, and yet I'd have just about zero practical use for it.
