Hot off the UPS truck. Well not really, I've played it and done some adjustments. These things play and sound fantastic. Real robust quality, slightly heavy (chunky), better than a Fender - does not have that "toyish" feel. Neck is about the size of a Strat but seems harder and nicer. Best of all is if you stay on "treble" it sounds nothing like a Strat. If you put it on "rhythm" it sounds like a Strat kinda, but probably better and more present as if the pickups suck in the sound a little harder. I never go away from the bridge hum as a player anyway. It has 10's on it. that will need to change to 9.5's. Lovin' the Fried Man!!
