Guys...yesterday, I got in my blonde Chad Underwood hardtail Strat. When I first opened the box, I noticed how light it was(6lbs. 4oz.). When I strummed it unplugged, the thing rang out like a grand piano...I kid you not! I thought to myself, "If this thing sounds half as good plugged in as it does unplugged, I'll be a REAL happy guy." Well...I got it home and plugged it into my 1963 AC 30. This guitar sounds GLORIOUS!!! It has Ron Ellis pickups in it, which Chad had been raving to me about. He was not exaggerating...these things sound unreal. Every position sounds great. The string separation is great....I cannot put this guitar down. Thanks Chad for hitting this one out of the park, and thanks Ron for making some killer pickups. It's been raining and overcast, but I had to shoot a couple of quick pics. Please forgive the quality of them. ENJOY!
