I've purchased this a few months ago but shipped it to a friend in the USA. Fast forward to this summer and here it is. I won't keep it as I got my holy grail Custom in the meantime (CC#22) BUT I have to say it sounds really really good. It's louder and a bit more jangly but the tone is there and obviously it's very lightweight even with the Bigsby. For the price, under $3k, you really get a nice guitar. The neck is extremely comfortable, I'd say a bit like an R9. The pots are excellent and retain the treble when rolling off the volume. Nice action on the Bigsby, it stays well in tune. Here are some pics and a video.
