    My god. The tone. Simply incredible. I didn't really get a good ear for it at the shop because I just wanted to get the feel for it. I knew it would sound good. Sounds better than I could imagine. I want to cry.

    I see why people pay so much for guitars. Nothing comes close to this, in my experience.

    The feel. The tone. The dynamics. The resonance. The mojo. The materials.

    I tried to replicate a 68 with good parts. Spent around 1500 doing so, doesn't come close to this. It even sounds amazing acoustically! Hell, I can even feel the difference in quality with the back cavity cover.

    Now I know why Jimi said "...that's alright. I still got my guitar."

    Congrats!!! I'm not a big fan of Michael Landau (not that I don't like him, just never listened to him), but the CS Landau Strat is such a rad guitar. Congrats!!!
