I bought this guitar after reading the glorifying reviews from this site. My local dealer was out of stock, so I purchased one mail order from Musicians Friend. I was really disappointed with the sound of this guitar. It just didn't match the hollow body/rockabilly impression. It sounds like an average SOLID body guitar with very little character. I've since played a demo model at my local dealer to find that my initial impression was correct - it sounds average. I do like the playability, controls, and look of the Wildkat (which makes it usable). I've been playing since 1984 so I've accrued enough gizmos to make this guitar sound good. But, If I just plug it in directly to my amp (Fender Deluxe Reverb) then it sounds like wasted money. So, if you have some COSM effects or a plethora of stomp boxes then this guitar may be for you. If your looking for an honest, stand alone Rockabilly git box then......Move along....This one's not for you.
