Picked up my brad Paisley sig guitar yesterday. Sounds great through my Tone King Sky King. Not quite as beefy sounding as my custom shop 52. Maybe a touch more twangy. More mid rangey. The neck on the BP is comfortable. Not as big as the Nocaster U on my CS but close enough.Even though my CS 52 is 6.9 pounds the BP makes it feel heavy. One little bonus with this guitar. When I pulled it out of the bag it still had the old price before Fenders Price hike and the manager gave it to me for that. I guess the Long and Mcquade store has had it for a while. The guitar sounds great and feels great so its nice to save a bit with the pre price hike.
