Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This just arrived and I am totally blown away. First of all, I bought it as a "blemished" unit as it was a return. I've inspected every square inch of this thing and there is not a scratch or scuff on it. It's absolutely mint. Plugging it in, the tone is fantastic as is the playability. The Nordstrand pickups are amazing as is the Ibanez preamp. All in all, I don't think there is anything I could be happier about. As always, zZounds is the best with customer service and the overall purchasing experience. This is my third instrument from them and then never disappoint.
