This review is based solely on the guitar. The Sam Ash buying experience was excellent as always. The guitar was aesthetically pleasing but the tone and play-ability was not what I expected. The fret scale felt small and the tone was thinner than I expected. If you are buying this just to have a copy of the Kurt Cobain Jaguar this is right up your alley. Otherwise, I would go with one of the American Series Jaguars at the same price point.
