yes! It is amazing. I posted this originally just for the folks still searching for the sound...I was always convinced that a neck through was the way to go, and when i got my warmouth, I was told that a bolt on will sound like crap. So far, my bolt on sounds better than any other I have played!

Saw Trey Anastasio the other night. Solo tour. He's playing his trusty Languedoc, of course, but on this tour also features a Fender Jaguar on a couple tunes. He jammed out a few solos on the Jaguar, and of course sounded great. He's a fantastic player regardless of the instrument, and clearly knew his way around that guitar's funky settings.
BUT... after one long jam with the Fender, he switched back to the Languedoc... and the difference was rather stark. The Languedoc is a very expressive guitar, and he's played it forever. The result? A huge array of nuances in the tone that were simply not there with the Fender. Trey really, really knows how to milk the 'Doc for all of it's quirks, and the resulting tunes sound all the better, more interesting, for it.
Trey's great regardless, but Trey + Languedoc is extra special.
