Wow...what a beauty


I received this Black Beauty yesterday. It is absolutely gorgeous! Great sound and action. When sitting it just settles sweetly on to my lap. The vibrato is a really nice touch. I own a Starfire from 1965 and the duo make a great combination.

Dream Guitar


It feels and sounds amazing and even unplugged it has beautiful tone and character which is great for some late night practicing. My only issue so far has been some tuning stability issues but it probably just needs more lubrication.This has become my dream guitar and it feels like it should cost a lot more.

Amazing Guitar!


This is a fantastic guitar. I love the sound, looks, and feel. I have no regrets. I wish I could buy 2.

A Looker and a Cooker!


Number 1 axe for my gigging. Sounds awesome with looks to kill and nobody else has one! Minor issue with scratchy master volume pot but all in all worth every penny
