That's a John Cruz Master Design (not built by him but by a team under his direction - read - cheaper) '63. But I have only had the two. So unfair answer to a fair question. How are they to a MIM? No idea. The actual 63 was alright. But that was a LONG time ago. My sons each had American Fenders and I like either of mine more. But probably because they were pre-beat so they were comfortable like old jeans.
