After years of being a Parker/Gibson fanatic, I've finally found my axe! What a beautifully crafted, feeling, sounding, and playing instrument! Hands-down, the most amazing guitar I've been fortunate enough to own (to contrast, I've owned a '64 Jaguar, '79 LP Deluxe, '17 LP HP, '94 Parker Fly Deluxe, etc.). 'Interesting' instruments are what I prefer over cookie-cutter uninspired designs. What a sheer joy to play!
