Sound — 10
Used Jenson .022 "old style" capacitors in the tone control. Added a phase inverter for the pickups. This gives a one of a kind pickup chorus or a bright Telecaster sound. Great for Country Style. This is a Very Light Weight easy to play Jazz sound or a Les Paul sound. Very rich to very bright and clean. Works well with effects also.
Overall Impression — 10
Not the perfect match for my style, so I had Dave Bunker make me another electric guitar that is a better match because of the tremolo tail piece. That's another review. The sound is like the violin that you have only heard once and will never hear again. This is a great rhythm guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I have played many times live with this guitar. Stays in tune all night. I cannot play the tune out of this Guitar. This is the kind of guitar that goes up in tuning while being stored. Perfect finish. Will last forever. It is a piece of ART. The Bridge is a Magnum to last for many year. Very easy to change strings and return. The whole design for Guitar is for reliability.
