    This is the only guitar I've played from Patrick Hufschmid, and aside from looking great, and it a unique guitar in terms of tone and playability. The neck is a lot thicker than you might imagine from an RG/super strat shaped guitar - not like a Les Paul, but not unlike a strat or tele. It thins out a bit as you reach the higher frets. It's very comfortable, however you describe it. The Schaller Hannes gives it a very loud, percussive acoustic tone, that sounds very articulate when combined with the medium-high output pickups.

    The finish of the guitar (oil) has it that you would have to be incredibly careful to prevent putting marks on it. As such, there is a fair amount of very light "buckle rash" or indentations on the back of the guitar, and impressions across the rest of the guitar's surface, but none of it pierces the surface/stain, and is not obvious unless held in the light, except for a tiny ding on the tip of the headstock. The worst flaw is a neck pocket crack, which doesn't threaten to get worse than it is, if my experience is at all reliable.
