The AS-820 12-string and cases arrived Fri in fine shape. Ordered Tues morning and received on Fri afternoon. Cool.
Every nut and screw are tight & true. Aside from the nut needing a bit of slot adjustment and profiling(actually less than on most Gibsons etc I run into) and some other neck etc tweaking, this is a great guitar. Construction and workmanship are as good or better than in the 3-4x$
"Big" brand names, and the clear finish and binding are cleaner than my '95 Epi Sheraton, which is similar to this This is one of 6 12s I own, and it's
made it hard to say which is my favorite at the moment, now. I find many defects in guitars are a result of handling after the factory final inspection - and there's not a bit of that that I noticed here. Nice fret work.
I would recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a good 12, no matter what their budget. So I'll be back....
