I can't get over how much fun this guitar is! Pulled it down off the wall in-store and strummed it. It had a nice resonance, so I plugged it into an amp, and lost track of time! Yamaha has always had great quality in their builds, and this one was no exception. The finish was great, the neck solid, and the frets were like glass! The neck was fast and comfortable, and I could pull off some serious shred, or some finger-picked blues riffs. The guitar definitely has that old-school LP Jr. vibe, and the yellow finish caps off that vibe nicely. I'm usually one who changes pickups in any guitar I buy, but I like these. Not high gain, but they have a sound all their own, and even give a nice Fender-y feel with both pickups on. Think I'll keep 'em. You can't go wrong with this little monster. I own Gibsons, Charvels, Fenders, and this little gem gets plenty of attention. I got some amazing recorded tones with it already. If you are looking for a bang-for-the-buck sleeper guitar, or want some of that vintage set-neck vibe, but don't like Epis, this is your guitar. Hell, if you just want a GREAT GUITAR, this is a great choice! Amazing value!!
