I purchased my Vistalite kit in July of 2011 and I played it all but 6 or 7 times. It's not a bad sounding kit it's just that I prefer my maple classic better. I thought about selling them and put them on Craigslist and no one was interested. So I decided since they are new I'll just box them up and try selling them in 15-20 years. I wish I could have played a kit before really spending all that money on it because I thought it looked cool! Just wish I would have purchased another maple kit instead. So my next venture is to restore some maple classic's from the 70's and really have something that I will enjoy playing.
