    That's one hell of a left hand he's got - the guitar isn't plugged in - just the 2 mics. Right ain't bad either.
    What tuning do you suppose that is?

    Ive been looking for a affordable semi hollow body with humbuckers and this just happens to have the Graph tech ghost piezo acoustic bridge. Anyone with info on playability or quality?

    My Dad, who is a fantastic trumpet player, plays a bit of sax and is truly a great singer; bought this American Strat Plus for me in 1993, for my 14th birthday. Caribbean mist is the color. I wish I had as much talent as he does but Ive been playing since then and play twice per week in church. This is my main go to Guitar.

    I have one. I bought it for it's looks (I like strange/unusual stuff) and because I was wishing I had never sold my Parker Fly (piezo pickup also) Mine has been reworked with dual split humbuckers and rewired to allow splitting and changing the phase on both (2 additional switches added) I had it setup by a well renowned Luthier (McBlane in Preble NY) and it's a wonderful instrument to play. Very flexible, warm and after the setup/fret job it's like butt-ah. Don't think you're going to play it unplugged and get any real sound out of it. The F holes are for show.

    I have so many guitars that this one ends up as sculpture rather than being played so I'm considering selling it. PM me if you're interested.
