24 loans paid off!
I wasn't planning to buy such an expensive guitar, but when I tried it out, it sounded so good that I took out a 24-cycle loan (laughs).
When I play it without putting it through an amp, I can feel the vibrations of the strings through the body.
When I play chords, the separation of the notes is so clear that it is easy to see how bad I am at playing.
When played through an amp, it has the bright sound of a Strat, but the bass is also present, so it doesn't sound at all dull.
I changed the pegs to Magnum locks right after I bought it. When I asked for the same customization as my main Strat (http://guitar-cv.com/254), I was told "Don't do it, it's a waste of money" (laugh).
It sounds very Strat-like.
