    i bought this guitar yesterday from CCMUSIC to be honest this is one of the best value for money guitars you could possibly buy its beautiful and plays like butter in your fingers whether you’re into jazz funk nearly any type of music this guitar has it covered I’ve got no. 10 of only 50 made I’ve been playing through an A.E.R compact 60 a Laney VC30 112 and a HENRIKSON jazz amp and it has just blown me away how versitile this guitar is you would need to see to believe awesome guitar well worth the money if it had Gibson on the head stock you would be looking at £3500+ guitar I’ve got a Gibson ES175 and a heritage H575 + others and this guitar is better than the lot if you have any sense buy one before there all gone I’m one very happy guy

    This is my guitar I have the best of the best regarding Gibson,fender,Prs,Musicman, and any other American or other brand you care to mention. The bare knuckle pups in this guitar were specially matched for this guitar as I’ve allready said above. I have probably the best of the best with every guitar maker available. Acoustic aswell as electric but this guitar covers more ground than any other,she can be the the baddest dirtiest fucker you ever came across to the most perfect little house on the prairie guitar you ever came across. But any of your options are covered!!! There’s little between heaven and& hell but this guitar has it covered here. With kindest regards Scotty.
