I love this guitar. It sounds really good, feels good and looks good. The neck is a joy to play and predictably the first thing I did was overbend the high E at the 24th fret! I really want to give it 5 stars because fundamentally it's a good guitar and exactly what I was looking for, but... I haven't had a guitar with a Floyd Rose trem since the early 1990's and I had forgotten what a pain they can be for tuning stability. I really do like my new guitar but I know that at some point I will be upgrading the trem from a Special to an Original. However, upgrading the trem adds another £150 to £200 to the overall cost. I like this guitar enough to do it but it's something to think about if considering buying this guitar. This is a fab guitar that would earn 5 stars from me if it wasn't for a sticky FR Special. None-the-less I like it enough to keep it knowing I'll upgrade the trem to make it perfect.
