I own several electric guitars, and I have to say this is the one that I play more than all the others combined! It has a nicely balanced body, solid tuners, and fantastic sound played either clean or overdriven on these bright single-coil pick-ups. I bought my jetglo 6-string new in 2004 and have found it is built like a rock -- totally dependable even after I have dropped it (twice). It is American-made quality and 100% worth the price. I hope to get a 12-string Rickenbacker 620 some time soon to cover what this guitar can't do.
