I recieved this instrument as a birthday present! I am enjoying the playability of this instrument. The electronics are designed well and work intuitively for great sound. I have other high end guitars and I have to say the feel of the neck and the playability is amazing. The frets are balanced with no buzz and not fret edges - smooth! The speed of the neck action is almost like an electric guitar. I restrung the guitar with elixir lights 53-12 (WOW). The instrument is very versitile. I am having a very happy birthday!!
