Nice looking guitar.
How is the neck angle on it?
Is the bridge really high off of the body?

Neck angle? Not sure what you mean? Actually the bridge is low. It has nice action. Not sure if I'm going to keep it. I got it because it reminded me of an x series Ibby I had.

What I was referring to with the neck angle, is look at the neck where it joins the body. You notice how it's not staight with the body, it's slanted more like a Gibson. That's the neck angle.

As long as you can get the action low, it's all good.

took care of the neck dive by moving the strap button. Still on the fence if I'm going to keep it. Been debating on trading it off for something else.
