... and it is quite nice. Good finish, good workmanship. I like the sound of it. Very versatile. I had to correct three problems, however: the high E string was put on sloppily, and part of it was actually caught under a tailpiece post! I had to slacken all of the strings and then use a large flathead screwdriver to pry up the tailpiece until I could free the string, and, I had to adjust the string saddles on the first and third strings to correct intonation problems-- it didn't take a lot of adjustment-- and, the neck had insufficient tension on the truss rod. All these things were easy to correct. I lowered the action to make it comfortable for me, and now I'm quite happy with this guitar. the sonic blue finish is very light. I had a sonic blue strat once and it seems that sonic blue was a bit darker, but I'm not going to quibble about a slight difference in tint. This guitar is vastly superior in every respect to the Jay Turser copy I bought, and returned. For one thing, this guitar can actually be tuned!
