Solid wood body and neck thru makes for an amazing sound. Jumbo frets make playing so smooth. For the money I don't think there are any guitars that rival this one, I'd even be hard pressed to believe the USA Select series is worth the price difference.
The pickups are my only complaint and I had planned to replace those immediately upon purchase anyway.
The guitar is AWESOME. PERIOD
