I've been on the hunt for a semi-hollow 335-style guitar for a while now. Picked this up a few weeks ago and I have to say it is one of the most responsive guitars I've ever played. I checked under the hood when I gave her a quick setup on the weekend, and it has the famed Super 58 pickups in it. They are bright, in a GREAT way. The only thing this guitar is missing is a Varitone (always wanted one) but I'll probably leave it stock. Why mess with a good thing?
