This is a very beautiful guitar. Every time I take it out of the case, everyone around me is drawn to it, asking questions about it. But looks are not it's only quality, as it sounds every bit as amazing. The preamp controls are very convenient, keeping it simple but powerful at the same time. The built in tuner is also awesome, and although it's not the most accurate thing in the world, it gets the job done along with a bit of ear adjustment. Along with the tuner and your standard Bass, Mid, and Treble adjustments, it's got a notch filter for weeding out any annoying feedback when playing with large amplifiers or in a smaller room. It can also be used to tweak the sound you are looking for.

The only negative thing about this guitar is the construction quality. Nothing too major, but the top is a veneer apposed to a solid top, but it is understandable as spalted maple is quite an expensive wood. Also at some of the glue joints there is a bit of glue that is visible, no big deal but it is an imperfection none the less.

Overall this is a great sounding and looking guitar, and priced exeptionally well. I would reccomend it to anyone.
