    Bloody anorach's !! Well done.
    Most who have seen my Kat's thought they were Gibby's 'till they saw the logo. It is very Gibson and not very Fender. And a better axe than many think.
    I have two - the dark green one and a black one that is pretty fcuk'ed up which i'm gonna' restore. Will upgrade p'ups in the latter. Also have a Fender/Squier one with the more Fenderlike construction - bolt on neck and straight head angle. And a F/S bass that really rawks out.
