Notice how their prices have gone way up due to some popular players now using them.
Lets see how long it takes for those guitars to go back on the market because they have terrible intonation and are hard to play.
Don't you think?

I had a 55 Jr (with the bridge close to the pickup) and currently have a 56 Special - the 55 Jr came with a compensated bridge so can't say how well the stock was - it was fine. But the Special is incredibly well intonated and is to be honest more true and clear than most of my other guitars

I'm guessing this is bait. But on the off chance it isn't: they aren't hard to play. They are more expressive and dynamic than most guitars I know of, I guess some people would consider that as "hard to play" (if you're not used to hearing everything your hands are doing on your guitar)?

Very cool for dirty rock stuff but up neck chording can be a problem.
Small frets = more difficult bending.
In the end most players will go back to tune o guitars or Strats.
