I opened the box upon delivery expecting possible problems. My fears were unfounded. I looked and looked for dings, and manufacturing errors, but I found it to be a perfect guitar. The setup was even spot on. In fact the measurements at the 12th fret strings were actually a 64th less than the standard measurement, and there is no buzz, which, was great! The neck feels very comfortable, and it is very playable, like butter. I put a set of La Bella 413P Studio strings on it, and it made it better yet. I love the sound plugged in to a Kustom Amp. I can dial in any sound that I want, and the guitar delivers. I am getting to be an old man, and I am pretty fussy about my guitars and equipment, and this guitar is a keeper.
