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?
