Great guitars. Had one, sold it, missed it, bought another, won't sell it.

5

I'm not played one, but on looks alone that's a lot of guitar for not much money.

6

Heard great things about them, I'm tempted.

7

Great, great guitars. Have one myself. One of the best feeling necks you will ever wrap your hand around. Diggey is a real straight shooter and pleasure to deal with. He does an awesome job packing a guitar...no worries there.

If I could still hold onto a pick, keep my hands from shaking and had the $$$, I would already own this!
