Okay! The gig went great and this guitar plays really well. I have the action set lighter than my Fender Jazz and have to get used to that. You have to really hush the strings especially at higher volumes. This thing makes you practice better control, but is easier to play than the Jazz. This is not the best guitar to do slap on. The tone is much richer than the Jazz. Comments from the band and audience was all positive. We all love this guitar. I did not have any cutting out problems as described on other sites. If I ever do have problems, I know to look at the solder work on the pots. I found that you need to have a lighter touch on slides to have them sound right. Again, this is a whole different animal than a Jazz!
