Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The Neck Scale Length is 24.6 vs. 25.5 on a Telecaster. This makes it extremely easy to play. It also comes with a GraphTech Tusq nut installed which I did not know when I bought it. I was planning on putting one on it, but, Lo & Behold it already had one! I find it stays in tune just fine. I am not sure why the other review said otherwise. The Guitar looks and feels great. It's a little more fragile than a solid body Fender. That's to be expected. Jazz chords are real Dreamy with the Bigsby. Stray Cat Strut sounds just like the record.
