If I'd had an axe like this 20 years ago I'd be a millionare by now. This thing sings like no other instrument I've ever played. When I pick it up it disappears and the music just comes out. If I ever had to replace it there would be a problem because these are quite rare in my neck of the woods. It is quite simply the best electric guitar I've ever come across bar none. I've owned a few Fenders in my time and a couple of Gibsons but none of them come close.
