This is a nice guitar for the price point. The finish is top notch. I could not find one flaw. The Blacktop Filtertrons sound very different than the TV Jones brand found in the higher end series but offer a clean, low output twang nevertheless. The pole pieces are directly under the strings which is perfect. You won't even find this with their vintage guitars. For myself the medium jumbo frets are a must. These modern touches are an improvement over the vintage models. The neck has a beefy U shape which takes a bit getting used to. All around this is a pretty great guitar!
