    Yep, I've owned and played a few. Nice axes but kind of overlooked on the vintage scene. I am currently using a zebra neck pup from this model in my main squeeze. They're cool axes.

    Yep, a buddy of mine had one for a time. The have really big jumbo frets, and his played very well. Unfortunately, many of these were routed out for a Kahler trem (his was). If you have the opportunity to play before you buy, I wouldn't hesitate.

    i played one a while back, it was heavy like a boat anchor but had good playability and good tone.

    They tend to be really heavy and don't really have that 335 tone. Still an interesting model if you can find one reasonably priced.

    Mahogany body and neck, ebony board, humbckers.. kind of a Special meets Custom vibe. The one I'm familiar with is not heavy and has a beautiful neck.
