Tony...you could kill it on a bargain basement First Act. But that is a cool guitar. Especially for 180 bucks. And...the T-Tops in my 71 LP Custom are microphonic as hell, and I've gigged that guitar from Maine to San Diego. Same for the Seth Lovers in my 355. I prefer my buckers unpotted. They're more lively, and I don't play with stupid amounts of gain. And...I know where my volume knob is.
