So I have picked up and played three of these in Guitar shops now, and each one has been very nearly perfect. They look superb, great weight feel and all three have been well set up with very nice low action. Frets seem really good, not too high and chunky. The hard tail would be perfect for what I mostly play.$990 ticket price in Australian stores, though I suspect you could get 100 taken off that. Its really not very fair, I already have 11 guitars... The gold and the jade look amazing with the contrast to the mahogany back.
