Don't normally buy a guitar without trying it.....but it had a great writeup so...… It is an excellent guitar. Well set up and sounds great. Very attractive colour. I was particularly attracted to its 2 humbuckers with coil taps, treble bleed and phase switch. Combined with the two volume controls it can produce a number of Peter Green tones!
