    That looks prety smart and the price ain't to bad either! :hyper:

    Shame about the pick ups though! I mean they could have styled them so they fitted the old hollow body style. (Anyone know what I mean??? :confused: )

    But it does look a "steal" as some people say!

    I've got one and it gets lots of play. Nice neck, good sound, no case...
     
  4. not really what im into, but it seems like it would be pretty cool to mess around with.
     
  5. Very cool looking, and semi-hollows have a cool tone.

    Ask Ibanks about sound samples - he's the one who made 'em.
