Sounds is decent and the fact that it is a solid top means it should mellow and warm with age, so I expect it to continue to improve. Fit and finish are good. Frets are not sharp on the ends or rough. Fingerboard is nice. Setup was good. Intonation was spot on. No truss rod work was necessary out of the box. I kept reading how this neck was the right size... not too small, not too big, precisely engineered to be comfortable. There are other guitars that are worse... no doubt about it. But on a scale of 1-5, it's a 3. And the sticky, lacquered back of the neck... just don't care for it. Feels cheap. Not terribly comfortable.
