This guitar screams Hendrix/SRV with great harmonics and overtones, powerful, punchy and sweet too! She’s got the high end fidelity to really scream, bite, soar and articulate – with great harmonics and overtones. Action is light, she plays like butter and really nails those Blues licks with more control and a bigger bite. Acoustically, she has more resonance than any. You can feel the vibration all over the entire guitar and plugged in she will BLOW YOU AWAY with incredible sustain.
