This guitar is a good practice and songwriting tool. The body shape is very pleasing and the tremolo is nice. It's a mixture of things that are so cool you don't understand why no one else has used them since and serious design flaws.
With four single coils each with individual controls, your bound for some cool sounds. From country twang, to blazing blues, to creamy necks, you get all sorts of noise. Overall, this guitar offers a lot of control and customize-able-ness.
It is a beautiful jazz guitar, but it is also good for basic rock. The variety in terms of tone is not that great (in terms of amount) but what it can do it does very well.
It's got the clarity of a Tele, the sparkle of a Strat, the fatness of a Les Paul, and sonic capabilities beyond what any other guitar maker is doing today.
