In 2018 I initially bought this guitar for the cool vintage color and expecting a different tone than all of my other guitars. At the time, I was playing in a 50's-60's band and figured it would fit well with Elvis sets. Honestly It didn't really get much play time since I had left the band. I couldn't find much use for it thinking it was really for Chet Atkins and rockabilly style and I don't need it. Recently, I started a classic rock and blues band and decided to give this guitar a whirl. Playing it through my VOX AC15 and Deluxe Reverb, it sounded phenomenal. I hooked it up with a few overdrive pedals (Pinnacle and Tube Screamer) with those TV Jones HiloTrons really kicked out some great tone. At our last practice I played it the entire practice and was able to get some great classic rock both clean and dirty along with smooth tone. Even the other guitar player was impressed. If you're looking for an under-rated versatile guitar, this is it. I plan on keeping it and continue to get my money's worth.
