The pictures don't do it justice — this is an attractive guitar! Besides being visually stunning, it plays fantastically. I've always been partial to Fender guitars, both for their single-coil versatility and their thin necks, so I was apprehensive about the DLX, but it doesn't feel (or sound) clunky or chunky in the least. The five-way switch allows you to choose from these configurations: bridge, bridge+middle, middle, middle+neck, neck. And since each pickup has its own volume and tone, you can be as finnicky as you like about dialing a tone of your choosing. No, you won't get this to sound like a Strat or a Jazzmaster, but, with a little fiddling, you will find a tone that fits your taste. (Consider raising and lowering pickups to your taste for further fine-tuning of sound!) Don't be afraid to use the Bigsby. This guitar holds tune like nobody's business; it arrived at my door in tune! It is made in Korea, for what it's worth, and I did lower the action a little bit, but overall, I am so very happy with this guitar!
