Having had the pleasure of owning many beautiful guitars over my 40 years of playing and collecting, this one beats them all hands down! In my opinion, this one is without an exception a perfect blend of balance, weight, tone and feel. Not one of the "great" guitars in my opinion could match this perfect blend. It was a real stretch for me financially at this time but it is worth many times more to me. After owning it for a year, I still grin every time I play it. If one could love a guitar, then I love this one. Thank you John Petrucci and MusicMan! Perfection personified! Expensive, but worth many times more to me. By far the finest guitar I have had the pleasure to owned.
