Re: The Greg Howe Laguna LE924FRTAO
I played one tonight at the GC in Phoenix. Wouldn't have known it was the Greg Howe model except I'd seen him holding one in an ad.
It reminded me a lot of the Fender HM's Greg used to play. Neck radius is flat, just like the HM's, back contour is similar, just a little thicker. Played really well right off the wall. (Setup was much better than the $1,300 & $1,400 Ibanez RG re-issues.)
I was very surprised. It seemed like a really well made guitar and played like a dream. It was GC, so I can't give an accurate opinion on the sound.
I would probably be very tempted to get one - the Schaller-type Licensed Floyd was a bit of a put off though. But If I found out that their Floyd was made with hardened steel and had a brass bridge block I would buy one.
