For such an inexpensive guitar (I paid $650 for it), it sure plays nice. Excellent quality construction, flawless fit and finish, very solid and playable neck, and a nice smooth fretboard with excellent fret work. I really have no complaints other than the fact that its body shape digs into me in two places (leg and chest) when I try to play it sitting down. But other than that, I am very pleased with it!
I don't even hate the EMGs...they sound surprisingly good (especially the 85 in the neck position), even if not exactly thick with the lower-mids.
