    Once I saw this guitar I had to have it. Wife not too happy but once she saw and heard it, life became better. Plays great and really nice to play chords on.

    Here you can see the bridge is not adjusted correctly so intonation was off. Slid the high side up a bit and got the intonation I need.

    The guitar plays so nice. Super easy to fret chords and move up and down the fret board. The pickups sound really good to and I am glad I chose this guitar with the HS FilterTrons.
