    'Any good' is in the eyes' of the Be-Holder!!! I like it!! Light weight, good balance, great tone, looks good. The original electronics were pretty noisy, so I put in EMG actives in mine. I also put on a Gotoh 201 bridge and made a new nut, wider and deeper. All that made a difference in tone. I like it very much. Some days I LOVE it. Some days I just like it!! Just one of those things................................... :smug:
