    Always read great reviews about them, but never played one before.

    How do they compare to 70´s or 60´s Fenders in terms of sound and quality ?

    i had a mid 80's jazz sound with the changed headstock. it was about as good as a recent mij fender. in no way would i say it compared favorably to a 60's or 70's fender.
