Hot Damn! That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!! I've only ever owned Fender's but my buddies all seem to gravitate to Epi's and Gibsons. I stayed away from the former due to quality control issues and the latter due to cost. But I will be checking out one of these for sure. That red one is just calling to me. If anyone has a chance to try one out I'd like to know their impressions.
