    Anyone own/played one? I saw him on tour with Sandip Berman & it was luscious! It looks good on paper though I'm quite ignorant!

    I DID search the archives & came up with next to nothing...

    OH, & his tune Consequently...ETHEREAL!

    Any input welcome
    &
    Thanks

    I played the VB sig at last years summer namm.it was very nice,I spent close to an hour with it.it seems to be very versatile,and the neck was comfortable.it had its own sound,one that i thought was nice and mildly punchy,but I was able to dial in some kool tones(like I said very versatile).

    I just got one for christmas, sounds so sweet! I'm so happy with it.. mine doesn't have the same look as victors though. The koa on mine is alot lighter and has spots that are figured. Gorgeous none the less. It feels like a crime to play it with a belt on.

  5. Played one in a store and liked it. Easy to play, looks cool. I didn't really put it through alot of tests but walked away with a good impression. Compared it to a new Jazz Deluxe and MY personal choice would be the deluxe. Just my impression, not based on any hard facts.

    If I were to buy a new fender product it would be one of those.
