Greetings. I own the Satin Gold version of this guitar and absolutely love it. I do prefer the 50's necks but the 60's neck on this Trad is very nice. The weight of the guitar is comparable to the other Trads I have tried and I am a big fan of the 57/57+ pup combo. I feel it is one of the better deals out there on a 60's neck Trad and also enjoy that there is no coil tapping or any other mumbo jumbo. Just a straight up wicked axe.
