Like most people say, for $ its is a steal!!! My guitar was set up spot on !! Thanks to whoever did this! Been playing it for 7 days already and it just won't go out of tune, that is a big plus for me. I hate to be out of tune. Beautiful smooth neck, floyd rose, noiseless pups. Everyone has different amps and different pedal boards so yours may not sound great not because of the guitar, but because of the equipment mentioned. Everything works different with different connections, pedals,circuits, amps and so on and so forth ! I am pushing this guitar through a Peavey Classic 30 and my End of The World pedal board. Its sounds great!! It can play Rock, Blues, and Country dead on !! The only con and that is why I gave it a 4.5 is the pickguard and the block. The block is very thin but the sound is not though. And the pickguard is slightly peeling off at the edges, no problem Warmoth has a replacement for 25 dollars. So this is a great guitar for $, no one else will give you so much for that amount of money. I will buy another one as soon as I pay for this one. The pups are good no need to replace them at this time. As always thanks to Andrew Plassman !! Great dude !! Always makes sure my musical needs are met.
