I picked this up, along with an Explorer, in exchange for the PRS McCarty covered elsewhere on the blog. It seemed like a decent deal at the time. This guitar was perfectly ok but, in truth, nothing more. There was nothing specifically poor about it, it was just underwhelming in every way and got eased on out the door after a short while for a Bigsby-packing Telecaster. There’s not much more to say about it, really.
