    So I purchased this guitar off of Reverb - the price was so right and I really am getting into distressed/worn guitars lately. Read some great reviews and watched a couple of Youtube videos that seemed very favorable. It did take 3 months to arrive, partly because of China import issues as well as something called a virus going around.

    Guitar is much better than I expected... looks great, feels great, plays great, sounds great. Very impress and looking to possibly buying another one.

    Goldtop cover over sunburst relic, sunburst relic back, one piece mahogany body, hard maple top, one piece mahogany neck, ebony fretboard, long neck tenon, sanko frets, graphtech TUSQ nut, Sung II bridge/tailpiece, Jinho tuners, custom ALNICO 5 pickups, Alpha 500k pots

    I saw Rob Chapman’s video on them
    Very interesting
    Youll have to give a run down on it

    Ugh, I've been coveting a goldtop, preferably with some patina, for some time now, and this is not helping. I'm glad you're satisfied.

    The two most important questions.......(for me)
    Weight and neck size? (for some reason it looks like a skinny neck :( )

    Well for weight it is around 9 plus but under 10 - not light and not heavy. Neck is thicker than my Larrivee RS-4 so to me it's just right. Not a baseball bat size and not thin.... :)

    I did watch that video.... it's a lot of guitar for the money and no regrets at this point.

    That's heavy to me......deal breaker. :(
    Most baseball bats are too skinny imho.......I'd rather have a telephone pole-sized neck. ;)
