Just bought this exact guitar after seeing them for the first time online yesterday . Walked into my local GC and they happened to one which they had just got afew days before .So here's my take for anyone still interested in one . First of all the color is not as dark in person as it is on the website photos. It's not even as dark as it appears on my pics here .So if you don't think the color is dark enough in pics you probably won't like it in person. I do still like the color though personally . Not really lightweight, about the same as an American standard I have . So not heavy by any means. Butit feels really well balanced when on a strap. It is super resonant and I actually like the bridge pickup a little bit better than I like the fralin in my other tele.
