    I LIKE THE SURFACE

    Interesting... I wonder how in the world that feels, especially if your forearm practically lives on the face of the guitar.

    For those who have played it, does it have the same finish feel that the faded series does? The biggest turn off of the faded series is the super cheap feel of the finish.

    I can't honestly say I remeber exactly how it felt but it wasn't rough in the sense that it felt like sandpaper or anything. Yes it was similar to the Fadeds in that it appeared to only have thin satin finish.

    Keep in mind that the thin finish helps make for a very responsive tone.
