It took a few days to get used to playing the multi scale fanned frets, but once I did I regret not doing it sooner. The even tension from string to string is exactly the way a Guitar should be. Also I'm loving the Fishman fluence pick ups! Such clarity even with distortion cranked up running through an ENGL Powerball you can still hear every note of a complex jazz chord. Perfect guitar for progressive metal or for clean jazz. There are a few minor details in the looks that could've been better, but looks are always secondary to sound and performance. My only complaint about the deal was that they could only offer me two years 0%financing I would've preferred 4.
