I am new the the guitar players. Just started learning. But not a new musician. Was playing piano and keyboards/ organs for almost 30 years. Mainly blues, some jazz. Saying so I new what I wanted before i purchased this. I wanted fat and warm sound, aka LP has it. And I've got it. I think even more than that. Beautiful body, the neck is just perfect. Fat , warm sounds. Just perfect. Especially for the price.
Musical Background:
30 years of playing keyboards, pianos, organs
Musical Style:
Blues, some Jazz, classic rock,
