This is the second guitar, in a row, that I have ordered through zZounds that was unplayable, out of the box. After opening this on the day of purchase I had to take it to a tech for fret dressing and set up... the frets were shockingly bad for a guitar that retails for $1200, when it's not on sale. I'm not going to complain about the action but be forewarned that if you don't know how to adjust the truss rod and set it up yourself you may have to pay someone to do it for you. Also, less than impressive, are the plastic tuners that look like there were mounted by a 12 year old. $1200 guitar!!! Come on!BUT... now that I've had it set up and the sharp frets addressed it's INCREDIBLE! At some point I will replace the tuners with something of much better quality... but despite all that I've said here, it's a guitar that I'm glad I purchased it. Don't be shocked, though, if you buy one and you have to put some extra money into it.Here's what awesome... the pickups... WOW!!! The sound that comes from this guitar is worth all the extra effort I had to go through to get it playable. It sounds and feels amazing! The guitar is stunning in appearance. Everyone I've shown it to has been blown away by how gorgeous it is and the tone that comes from it.
