    Sweet review. It looks like you were more partial to the McCarty. I am interested in getting one of these two at some point and don't know which to get first. What's the scale on your McCarty?

    Great vid guys, I don't speak your language but the playing was really cool! Love the Metallica riffs! I'm actually thinking of buying an sc245 McCarthy also but will have to trade in my PS Paul's guitar to afford it. This vid has just tempted me even more lol.
