Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
this guitar is great! flawless finish...also comes with an extra wooden bridge. the nut and a couple of frets were a little high. a trip to the local luthier solved that problem ...the guitar plays like butter and intonates perfectly. this is my first time ordering thru zzounds and the experience was great. the rep helped me every step of the way. I play Jazz and blues (in two separate groups) the lgb excels in both styles. the Ibanez 58 custom pickups sound great on stage and in the recording studio.
Musical Background:
30+years guitar I have teaching studio and play professionally
Musical Style:
blues and jazz mainly also classical
