    Well under $200 in the door. It came in at 10.4 pounds. Not the end of the world, but it wouldn’t last a set standing up. Sitting down is all I do now, so who cares? I do like to play standing up sometimes and move around. If Keef had this thing in his hands when that fan rushed Mick Jagger on stage, there would have been a homicide. My initial assessment is that this is the best sub-$200 Guitar you can get your hands on.

    The neck is a little bit chubby C. Very comfortable. There’s even some flame on the back. The fretwork is equal to that which I have on my Deluxe Strat. The pickups are splitable and they sound pretty decent. Pretty much the same type you would find on a $500 guitar. The pots are crap. They work, but they’re scratchy and feel cheap, although I do like the fact that they turn easily.

    Bone nut is a little high. That’s okay. Locking tuners, two string trees, indidual block saddle bridge, American ash body, are ya kiddin me?

    I have the same guitar (RH vers). It's my open G axe, used it last night and it gets comments on the great tone. No issues with my pots, they're quiet as can be, though they spin very freely.

    Tobacco sunburst version has just been announced

    If it came with a rosewood/ebony/pau ferro neck I'd be all over it, still may have to acquire one regardless

    I like the guitar...but.... what I really want to know is where you got that salt!?

    I’m running low

    Can’t get enough of that pink goodness

    I wonder how much land is plundered for that rocky awesomeness

    Lol. I just picked it up at Burlington’s the other day. The wife tells me the pink color comes from all the minerals that the salt contains. I told her the pink comes from, well, never mind.
