Got this from Troglys Guitar show. Played very good right out of the bag. Sounded amazing! had my tech do a setup on it and now.....WOW! I'm always happy with the SE's I've got. But this one is different. Plays, feels, and sounds INCREDIBLE! I usually replace tuners, pots, pickups, and sometimes the nut. But this one is staying stock. Not a thing I would change on it. Seriously on par with my Core 594! Got some lampshade knobs coming for it. That and strap locks are all she needs!
