Artcore Custom, anyone?

I'm quite intrigued about getting an Artcore Custom. I know, I know, it's a Chinese Model. But has anyone actually played it before? The sound, the feel, the finish, etc. I'd really appreciate it if you guys (who tried the Artcore Customs) share your point of views.

Re: Artcore Custom, anyone?

I played the one with the floating pickup, and I was very impressed with it. Sounded, played, and felt way better than the Epi Joe Pass that I tested it against. The one I played had decent fretwork, but I heard that some of them might need some work on the frets. Overall, a very cool axe - first choice for a jazzbox in that price range for me...

But how come the Artcore Customs come with cases?
Hell, even the Korean Prestiges don't come with cases.

Well, the included case is a major deciding factor for me.
