First impressions: 1. This is a fine instrument. 2. I can see why many people love the 60's C neck shape. I was concerned I wouldn't like it since I have large hands, but I did not find it too thin measuring at .85 & 1. 3. Not in love with the color, may ditch the mint guard. Nice dark rosewood though. 4. Weight feels good at 7.5lbs. Differences from standard AVRI: Thin skin Nitro 9.5 radius 6105 frets Twisted tele PU's Saved a couple hundred bucks because it had 1 very tiny nick (visible in last photo). All in all very happy with the guitar and service from Wildwood.
