They are honestly the best N4s produced.  They are spec'ed to the original Davies N4 (1990 - 1992) and have a neck speck identical to Nuno's #1.  They have a deeper floyd cavity for greater pull-up range on the trem, and overall, just have a spetacular feel and playability (maybe a bit subjective there).

I can't say that the sound is going to be much different than the run-of-the-mill production N4s.

Yes, I believe that Funky Munky is the only store carrying the reissue.  I highly recommend buying from them.  I purchased my Paddy 2.0 from Le Munk :)

And I couldn't agree more with skee, outstanding guitar.

The 2.0 is just a reference to the Davies reissue.  2.0 = reissue.

Rook, how does the paduak sound through your line 6 ax212? That's the amp I've had since 1996.

Actually, I've never played it through my AX212.  I've always plugged into my Mesa.  But I prefer the sound of the padauk to the alder vintage.  It is amazing!

Thanks.  I think I'm gonna go with the paduak davies reissue over the alder davies reissue. I've heard a lot of good things about the paduak. Funky munky,here I come

I have a paduak 2.0. I bought it sight unseen from an ebay auction and it's so much more than I expected. The quality, I just can't say enough about it. As far as playability, think really big, tall frets, almost a scalloped feel. I have a strat with 22 Gibson style jumbos and this makes those feel like a 59 strat. Chords take a light touch for sure but the neck just f*cking flies for speed, like it's supposed to. I can't say the tone is superior to alder but it's very different for sure. It has one of the best acoustic sounds I've ever heard out of an electric, and like my guitar tech T.K. here in Memphis always says, a guitar cannot have a good electric sound without a good acoustic sound.
