    I had one for a while. I loved the sound of it. Really well-made and great-sounding guitar.

    What I couldn't deal with was the neck. The shoulders had some outward flare instead of turning perpendicular to the fingerboard, and I couldn't get used to it. I play with my thumb over a lot and it just pushed in the wrong places. It was good enough that I considered changing the neck, but that's a lot of money to completely devalue a pretty pricey guitar, so I ended up selling it.

    It did have a great throaty sound and the modern trem worked better and had better sustain and tuning characteristics (IMO) than the vintage style.
