I haven't really got to play it much because I have my Grandson today but first impression is that it took me a minute to get the E and A string to tune. Maybe it was just me. Also so far not that impressed with the pickups compared to '58 AV and '51 Nocasters in a build I have. I was just playing through a Fender GDec30 on a rock blues position and a rock metal position and the pickups didn't have the bite of the Nocasters or the thickness of the '58's. I did try it on a Acoustic Jumbo setting and that's where it really shined. I like the neck and playability of the guitar quite a bit. Super nice setup and finish on the guitar. Excellent shipping and packaging from Sweetwater. I know I'm going to love it.
