Hanson Guitars

Hey all,
I'm looking around at a few guitars lately and I came across a Hanson Cigno, which looks to be pretty awesome, but there are no dealers even close to me. Has anyone ever gotten to sit down with one of these? I saw that someone here had a Hanson Gatto, but I'm a little more drawn to the triple P-90 setup of the Cigno. It's a bit odd looking in the spectrum of Les Pauls, Strats, and Teles, but I think it's a pretty slick looking instrument.

I'm interested to hear about the quality of the build on these. Youtube videos aren't always telling of the PUP tone - how do they stack up? How's the fret-finishing? How is the hardware? Anyway, these are some of the questions I've got about the Cigno, and if anyone has had the chance to play one, I'd love to hear about it.

^ someone on musicradar bought one (not that model) fairly recently. if you do a search there i'm sure you'll find the thread.

Premiere Guitar did a review of the Hanson Chicagoan and seemed impressed with it. I don't know if it is the same with all of their instruments, but it is a good sign:

Yeah, I've read reviews on some of the Hanson line, mostly good stuff. I just didn't know if anyone here had personal experience with them. The Premier Guitar article seems to fancy them.
