AWESOME guitar for the money!!!
This is one AWESOME guitar for the money! Pictures do NOT do the white finish justice! The guitar is just gorgeous. Not one flaw anywhere to be found. The fit and finish on this guitar is easily equal to that of my $1,800.00 Carvins! The neck is VERY playable ... fretwork is flawless as well ... I actually love the way it plays. This guitar would be well worth the price if it didn't have any pickups or electronics in it at all!
The pickups are pretty good, actually. Not up to a set of good Duncans, but close. It does sound good. The switch and pots are of course Chinese, not up to par with Switchcraft and CTS, but the switch feels solid and everything works very well. Put $50.00 worth of Switchcraft switch and CTS pots in it, and about $200.00 worth of the best pickups of your choice, and for a total of $600.00 you will have a guitar easily equal to the best Gibson Les Paul on this planet regardless of price.
I'm no novice ... I've been playing over 40 years, own eight electric guitars, and owned a Les Paul Custom before it was stolen. A Les Paul Custom today costs right around $3,900.00 ... put those pickups in this guitar and this guitar will easily equal it in tone and playability ... and quality as well. That's my evaluation and opinion, and I'm stickin' to it!
