An excellent guitar for the price
This was truly a surprise and an excellent buy. Unfortunately, when I first got the guitar the neck and fretboard were extremely dry, so I had to but a little bit of oil on it to fix that. I was nervous about doing it, but it turned out to work just fine.
The guitar is set up so that the best feel and playability is to make the action very low. If you like low action guitars, this is perfect for you. If you prefer to have more give and tension, I wouldn't recommend picking this one up.
I absolutely love the finish on the neck and body. High quality feel. Also, the guitar is extremely light for all mahogany. The locking tuners are great as well.
The pickups sound great for stock. However, it couldn't hurt to switch them out. These pickups have heavenly tone if used through a tube amp(A Fender Hot Rod Deville for instance), but are not very suited for solid state use, although it sounds fine. The cleans are punchy and crisp, the gain is punchy and tight(through a tube amp). Perfect for lead and rhythm! I play all sorts of styles, and it can pretty much compensate for most of those sounds if using the right amp.
Overall, I am SO happy I purchased this guitar. If you are into heavier styles of music, this is a great guitar for you. Also, I dare you to beat the price against this kind of quality. Thank you Charvel for making such a great guitar!
