Scero nailed this one! I have a brand new classic that looks like it's lived 60 years of life on the road. This guitar feels amazing, looks incredible, and sounds even better. Like my other Scero, it is surprisingly loud when played unplugged, which I think is an excellent sign. You can feel this guitar move and breathe. Louis and I worked together to select just the right pickups, the right look for the relic'ing, the right neck shape, and the right controls. It was so fun watching the build progress, and Louis was a pleasure to work with. Great guitar!
