I love it. Do you find the chords a bit of a stretch?

If I knew any more than the equivelent of cowboy chords, I might!!

I took this to it's new owner on Friday night and his buddy who was there nearly ordered a guitar on the spot!

hearing someone who can actually PLAY one of these things set loose on it was great!
