Great tone with the Kruger ring. Setup with a G# tuned head and all else as sold by Deering. Very long sustain and very pure sound. From mellow to lots of punch.

Sound Rating: 10


Setup was excellent.

Setup Rating: 10


Flame maple tobacco collored with Inlays by Kevin Enochs. flawless. Not flashy. The only complaint is that for this cost more detail could have been put into it. Having said that it is superb. A bit more detail would have rated a 10.

Appearance Rating: 9


Hardware and finish is excellent the tuners are very accurate and easy to tune. Very smooth.

Reliability Rating: 10

Overall Comments

Yes I would recommend it. It is a very nice contrast to my 1983 Stelling sunflower. Ithe reason I bought this is that I have small hands and the Kruger tone ring with the standard Deering neck was atractive.

Overall Rating: 10
