I've always overlooked the Akesson, but every time I see one, I wish I had one. Yours looks killer with the 57/08s!

Thanks guys! I never paid much attention to the Akesson model either, until there was one on the wall at my local shop. They're like SE 245's on steroids - ebony board, adjustable bridge with locking studs. Sounded great stock, but the 57/08's put it over the top, best sounding guitar I've ever owned!
-I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
