From the moment I opened it I was impressed. I’ve always owned custom guitars, Baker custom guitar, Ovation custom build 6&12 string models, so this was my first “off the rack” guitar. I must be lucky because there were NO QC issues. I went over it with a fine tooth comb and it was flawless. Plays like a dream, sustains forever even compared to my Baker. Great intonation which I understand all Standards are Pleked before leaving the factory. Great CS from zZounds, I literally went to the last minute choosing between Goldtop and Cherry sunburst and I couldn’t be more satisfied. After 50 years I have ave a real “Paul”.
