This is just an amazing deal. I had been waffling on this purchase for about 6 months. If you are undecided, just pull the trigger. This guitar has an amazing tone, is so easy to play and it came set up better than any guitar I've ever had (10+). If you're into looks, it's simply stunning. How Alvarez can put so much into a guitar that retails under 1,000 I don't know.
