Was in Orlando Fl went to a place called "the music den". The guitar called out my name several times b4 I paid attention... it was too pretty... I figured it would run off with a Doctor, Lawyer or Quarterback, so I played hard to get. Finally I sat and played it for almost an hour. Without reverb or chorus it had a very mellow tone and excellent sustain for a single wrap set of pickups. I wiped her down and put her back. She had a little buzzing. The frets were in pretty decent shape. A slight neck adjustment I thought would cure the problem and it did. I could tell she had played a lot. She had no scars... she fitted well in my arms so OFF we went. I have played it almost daily since. She feels great in my hands, fits my body well and sometimes... we dance.
