I`ve been a LP player most of my life, and can`t believe how I`ve bonded with this guitar. The neck, the light weight, controlable feedback at volume, it`s all great! I had tried 335`s in the past, but found them too large to fit me right. This guitar fits me like a glove. And I really like the 57 Classics in it. They match perfectly with my Fuchs ODS30. I opted for the plaintop cause I hate keeping up with the flame wars on what guitar has the best flame, and I prefer the tone I`m getting. It seems less bright and thin than most of the fancy tops I`ve owned in the past. Plus I bought it new for a great price from Centre City Music, cheaper than most pay on Ebay, LOL! Anyone else use these as their main axe?
