I have been offered a Status Eclipse Artist 5 as a trade for my '64 Burns Vista Sonic. As far as I know, this particular model is equipped with a neck in graphite and also quite expensive. I have never played (or seen) a Status and do not know very much about them. What do you think? I'm not asking you to decide whether I should do the trade or not, I just want some opinions on the Eclipse Artist or Status in general. Are they hand-built, and what does the graphite-neck do for the sound?
