    One neck pickup Vol and Tone and Tap Switch

    The "Tequila Sunrise" color scheme.

    Kind of like a Parker Fly and a '60's Airline Res-O-Glas had a baby.
    The neck looks pretty nice.

    I played one of those at the swap meet last week. I almost bought it, and probably should have. They have big necks and feel pretty good. The unplugged tone was decent as well. I am not a fan of the looks. But if I come across another one for cheap I might bite.

    How about $240 all in?

    It always amazes me... as much time as I spent shopping for $300 guitars during a past phase of my life, that I still run across interesting brands I never heard of before. Dear Lord, please don't let me get started again.

    I think it is on par with a Mexican made Fender. Now you have to decide whether you would prefer a Switch or another similarly priced guitar. I personally don't like the looks so I say no. I had a chance to buy an all black one at the swap meet for $75 and I passed. I kind of regret it, now that I see the prices they are going for. After reviewing prices, I don't think you would have problems getting your money back, at $240, if you decide to buy it.
