it’s incredible. It is both the nicest looking and best sounding guitar I’ve ever owned. It blows my old ce-22 out of the water in regards to clarity of sound, playability, and functionality on stage. I’m blown away. Some people say it doesn’t have personality. I think really what it does is allow your amp to shine through. And it’s a joy to play. Someone on this forum said the 408 sounds “high def.” couldn’t agree more. Great way to put it.
