I had to wait several months for this to get back in-stock. Well worth it. This is one solid tone full piece of gear. It really doesn't get an acoustic type sound as you might think. But, it does rock and sing in almost all styles of music. Light weight, responsive pick-ups, versatile sounds, solid tuning gears. I play in the style of David Lindley (this responds well with some distortion) and also do some country rock and some ethereal music. This does very well in all styles for me.
