Oh, man, this thing ROCKS!!! It is probably the best sounding instrument I've ever played. It has an unbelievably gorgeous flame top (way, way better than the one on the MTD site) under a perfect tobacco sunburst. It has an Aguilar preamp, which is awesome, but I wish it had notches for "flat" on the bass and treble knobs. The B string is great, too. The neck has THE perfect shape. I was able to switch to the wide spacing immediatly. Well, I gotta get back to playing it, so I'll give you all a more thorough review later, and I'll post pics ASAP, I promise.
