The jazz-size neck is easy to play and while a bit head-heavy it hangs horizontal at worst on a strap so that's not a problem either. The non-contoured body edge is the biggest ergonomic issue but that seems like it will work out OK. It's got some kind of nylon strings on it and has some very acoustic flavor to the sound. Playing around with some palm muting (plucking with my thumb and muting with the side of my hand) leads me to believe I'm going to have to learn how to do that well with this instrument. The bridge at least has some slots with the "pin holes" although it doesn't have any pins. While it's non-adjustable the action seems high enough for me (as opposed to the low-action folks who might think it was on the high side). As long as I keep the amplified volume up enough I can avoid buzzing. All in all it's going to be a nice complement to my G&L L2000. Very much a different flavor.
