Aye the do, and they're really underrated. People call them starter guitars, but they are a hell of a lot better.

Yeah - Considering they're about Squier prices, they punch well above their weight - Trev Wilkinson does a lot of the design and electronic work. Just would be real nice to know a little more of the specs, is all. Solid Wood body doesn't say much, y'know
EDIT: These are the specs I found for it

Is Poplar any good as an economy wood? I'm not sure at all - I can guess it's better than Agathis ( or 'Commercial Mahogany' as the corporates insist it been known as)
