Balance is acoustic guitar-like nice and tight smile.gif funny it somehow reminded me of an old tele I played a while ago with thicker strings.

I guess its not ment for that but how does it perform in bluesy solo tone stuff with bending?

Oddly, I had the same thought when I put the switch in the middle smile.gif It had an almost "tele" clarity to it.

It does really well on bendy bluesy stuff which I'll make more vids to show. The higher strings don't have as much tension as the lower strings so they are easier to bend due to the fanned frets.
