Looks great! Especially the back!

How does it sound like? They are dirt machines. Does it do clean?

Any updates on this?
I've had two of the Sahara models and sent them both back.

I just picked it up today. So far I can't find anything crappy except maybe the switch. It feels a bit flimsy.

The tuners are good, binding and paint job are perfect. Plays pretty nice. This guitar and I will get along for a while I can tell.

I dropped the tuning down to open G and baptized it with a little Bobcaygeon…

Thx , yeah the quality is pretty decent.

I did have to file a couple of slightly sharp frets . but I overall, i think this is a great guitar. The pickups sound pretty good too. Nice big clean sound on my Vox Spitfire clone.

Looks great, Congrats!

I first picked one of these up when I wound up buying my Sahara and was similarly grooving on it, but something screwy was going on w/ the neck pick up. They both seemed really nicely built and a lot of fun to play to me.
