    It’s a good guitar, I had the burgundy mist Bluesboy version, but have had two of these in my hands... A couple thing to note:
    While the bridge is USA specs, the neck is narrower than the USA model, so the E strings ride mighty close to the edge of the neck (if such is a concern for you).

    The cut quality of the pickguard is not so good, my Bluesboy, and one of these I played had a poorly cut horn (was installed correctly otherwise, just not centered on the horn).

    All ASAT’s have treble bleeds, this one sounds good, on the Bluesboy it darkened the neck pup, I bypassed it.

    The neck is barely finished (like Squier Bullets), and may feel gritty when you get it, a quick rubdown will eliminate that dustyness.

    It’s a tad heavy, but the body is beauteous!

    They must have quite a stockpile of these things because it seems like it's the SDOTD every other week.
