So...this SC58 with the ebony fingerboard and 53/10s...
I wasn't sure about what I'd be able to play with it for the first few days. But now that I've put in a few weeks learning the guitar, it has become a true go-to instrument:
First, it's a great match for the HXDA amp in my studio. Second, it sounds amazing. I'm using it as much, if not more than, the A-V. The sound is huge, notes fly off it effortlessly, and it's got a great vintage tone. Third, I love the 2 piece bridge, the feel of the ebony board, and the overall playability.
Just a super instrument, and it even looks kinda ok.
