I bought this guitar when it came out years ago as a bit of a joke because of its look and because it was cheap. This guitar is no joke. Im impressed. Once set up, it plays great but i had to make 1 change. I replaced the bridge with "roller rockers" and its much better now regarding staying in tune. Before, using the bigsby tremolo, sometimes it wouldnt go back into tune, but after seapping the bridge part out, its great. I play anythimg from "jangly, clean" to "80s rock" to todays "pop" with it and its good. Blues is where it likes to shine i think however, on the front pickup. The paint finish is "ok" but on close up inspection you can tell the finish is a a big decal printed off a computer. Not complaining about it, just an observation. I definitely use it more than i thought i would, and you will too.
