"The electronics on the Sonic immediately impressed me. You can tell right away that the pots are smooth, the switches are tight, tuning machines rock solid, and the pickups cover a wider range than my Custom shop Tele ever could... The neck and frets also felt a cut above the norm... smooth and polished like something that came out of a custom shop".
