    thanks to everybody........yeah , these guitars are very good indeed.
    I can say that so far i've been playing them plugged and unplugged , wearing out my hands all day.
    I don't really like to comment till i've played them for a couple of days , but i will say that they are as good as Mike claims , they're damn fine guitars and very addicting to play. I'll be damned if i can find any weaknesses , they're so solidly built and oozing with sustain and tone. Stunning to gaze at too!:D

    I think one of them looks like a Telecaster, and the other one looks like a Stratocaster! Nice!
