I got this guitar about four months ago. I have about a thousand hours play time on it. I believe you need to play a guitar for a while before you really know what it is capable of. This is hands down the best guitar I have ever owned.I was looking for an alternative guitar that could do everything that I wanted on one guitar.Electronics are great. Pickups and pots go from Nashville chicken picking, to the heaviest metal. The secret is learning to control your volume and tone. Took a bit to get used to the stainless frets. Necks great and the set up was spot on out of the box.Guitar is lightweight which is great for my health issues. This is why I was looking for the one guitar to do everything. I have a bad back and can't handle heavy guitars strapped on for long periods of time.Now I take my one guitar, my amp and my pedal board and that's it.The guitar has about three hundred hours of sessions work on it and the engineer loves it's sound. The guitar is a winner. Leight weight body, roasted maple neck and fretboard, locking tuners, Seymour Duncan pickups and quality pots.One guitar has kept my career going.Thank you Rob Chapman and company.
