Just received, inspected, and played my new G2420. Setting the action way low it plays as if I just had it set up and fret dressed professionally. Extremely comfortable and smooth action and feel. Perfectly clear pickups and surprisingly responsive body. Cosmetically flawless and tasteful. I do everything from reading bop heads out of the real book to Chet style. Not much into hard rock and never use distortion though I like a lot of players who do . Only use reverb and a little chorus but this guitar seems a lot more versatile than what I use. Mainly I like a clean simple jazz box and this is that with character. Tuners are butter smooth with no play. I have an Ibanez AF55 with which I'm perfectly satisfied but I couldn't resist risking $459.99. My preference is hollow archtops. In my opinion there are a jillion brands now importing high quality low priced instruments that really impress me. This is a beautiful jazz box for no money and although it's versatile it also satisfies my taste for uncluttered simplicity. The fact that it's visually stunning and tasteful is secondary but sure is nice, It came with inspection labels with check off lists hanging all over it and in the box and the attention to detail is some of the most impressive Ive seen.
