60-70 guitars later...and sitting here now in my sixties...all I can say is this guitar is perfect in every way; feel, balance, tone, simplicity of controls, pickups (which are NOT active as the summary and matrix mistakenly says), coil tapping that really does give it additional sounds and not watered down humbuckers, neck and killer looks. Mine doesn't have a bigsby which I'd never pervert this guitar with anyway. The value is nothing short of astounding and I don't care about the resale value, 'cuz this ax ain't going nowhere!
