This guitar looks so much better in person (the black washed one with roasted neck) - it really looks nothing like the picture, I was imagining a typical darker glossy finish - but this is a very unique sort of greenish grey (not too green, just barley a hint of green) thats something between a glossy and matte very nice finish. This a great looking guitar. The roasted neck feels absolutely fantastic. The frets are perfect, and the tone is Seymore Duncan awesome. Intonation was spot on. Grover locking tuners, roasted neck, high quality workmanship, beautiful, and seymore duncan pups... all for about $500! Whats not to love? Oh, and a kill switch!
