Very, VERY neat! Sounds great, gives you a very passable sitar sound. If you're into trippy 60's music, this is a brilliant addition to your collection. Open chords drone and have a very unique sound to them, but where this REALLY shines is arpeggiated chords and single note runs, instant "Woah, Pass me the hashpipe Ringo"! Seems fairly well made (as far as Danelectro's go..), the body although ugly as sin, is surprisingly comfortable to play. Feels like your standard Danelectro neck, and it plays very smooth all the way up and down. Very gnarly instrument overall, just couldn't justify using it enough myself to pony up the $770 for it.
