...it looks like I'm getting an Ibanez AS73 and a Fender Mustang I amp (especially after Justin's review of it).
I'm not a jazz guy, but I'm not a metal guy either, and I know this will be great for blues, rock and country. Played one yesterday at the local music store and fell in love. Great heft--feels very solid--and it's beautifully finished. Absolutely glows.
Oh yeah, it sounded great, too.
