I just picked up one today and after setting it up, new strings, etc., I find it a very easy to play E-shaped guitar. Kudos once more for giving us lefties a killer guitar that's not BORING. Also, the locking tuners on this unit are super smooth and probably my favorite tuners.

glad you're enjoying it!

I love this guitar design - a big thumbs up to the guys in Metallica for designing incredible guitars.  I used to think to myself that every good guitar body design has  already been designed - thank you Metallica for proving me wrong.
