I have been playing for 40 years and when I got out of bands I started collecting vintage guitars , I have had a 54 LP a 60 LP a 58 dot that was so mint I never played it and a variety of Strats Ricks etc, but as the prices went nuts I started selling all of them off ,then I started b buying and I think many of the new ones are better than many of the old ones. I love this guitar it sounds as good as any I have had and I love the neck shape not to thin and not a baseball bat it has a thin body that is very comfortable and Im very happy with it .It played well out of the box but it needed a slight neck adjustment to play really low . I also want to mention I love zZounds I have bought about a dozen guitars form them and this one was a gift from my son ! So I will not be trading or selling it.
