This guitar is almost designed for bluesy slide guitar playing, although it can do much else. The P90 style pick ups sound great, with power and warmth and edge. The carved top is a delight and the semi hollow body adds subtlety to the tones which are wide ranging and detailed. The finish is gorgeous and the through neck and tuners a delight. I love the vintage style wraparound bridge which gives maximum string to bridge resonance. Play this guiat with a bottleneck and you will see why I love it so much.
