Bought this from a local dealer, 'The Guitar Gallery' in Wellington, New Zealand, and paid $800nz for it.

I felt I'd reached a point with my acoustic playing where I wanted an electric.

Looks beautiful, the two piece mahogony body has awesome resonance, feels solid, the neck's just a little shorter than what I'm used to, so that gives me a real feeling of control.
You can change the two mightymite pick ups from humbucker to single, which gives good variety with the 3-way switch, while the single tone and single volume knobs keep that part simple.

The edges of the frets were sharp in places, the shop smoothed these down as part of the set-up, a tech friend thought the humbuckers were set too low, but again after an adjustment no further bother.

Seems really solid, the quality is great

From the start it just felt right in my hands. I feel this is a guitar I can grow with, I did try many others prior to finding it, the only others I liked were like twice, three times the price...
