    Welcome to ST, welcome to the wonderful world of guitar, and HNGD! I have never played that model but know players love them.

    I recommend heeding duceditor's guidance, especially the amp now that you have a nice guit fiddle. Enjoy.

    John 5, to my understanding, plays all kinds of music, including Country, and I think his guitars are good do-it-all types. So, I think you have a winner there.

    The guitar is very cool. David did well. The epinonomous guitarist is even cooler. John 5 can play anything and seems to be a very kind person. I like his schtick too. Guitars, **** and monsters indeed. IMG9528651.jpg

    He played a wicked version of I've Got Rhythm amid a ferocious Country jam when my friend took that picture last year. Incredible talent.

    Good choice sir! Very fine guitar! And good price too.

    Any guitar will play any style music you want to play.

    Not only is John 5 an accomplished metal player, he's also an incredible country player as well. I like his country playing better than his metal playing.
