If you currently own one or did at one time, what do you think of them? Larry Fine doesn't speak badly of them and for the cost, appears you get good for your $. (I'm researching to buy new later this year).

I played them at the NAMM show. They were in a guitar booth called Axel (or something).

I thought they were pretty nice playing instruments, but I admit I had to play above all the typical first floor NAMM guitar/bass/drum stuff.

I've seen and worked on several of them. None that didn't have some kind of action problems, though. They look much nicer than they sound or play.
