What a suprise!
It has to be the most comfortable guitar to play and it sounds good too.
In all my years of playing I have never bought a guitar without playing it first, it makes me wonder what else I missed--- get one if you can!
I had an OLP Music Man copy that cost me $199 and it had a fantastic neck, very acceptable pickups, and a really nice sound, especially considering that its quilted maple face was actually something like Formica!
I could kick myself for selling it.
