I've owned this guitar for 3 months. It arrived perfectly set up and ready to play. I did change the strings.I absolutely love this guitar. The neck is perfect. Edges and fret ends smooth.The pickups are very dynamic and hot, but, clean up very sweetly as you roll the volume back.Priced like an entry level guitar, but, it's fit and finish, and sounds rival my Fender and Gibson guitars that were 3 times it's price.If you want that T-style sound and feel, this guitar has it, and then some.Buy with confidence.
