This guy is an instant favorite
I have owned a few starter guitars, but have only shelled out for one other guitar above the starter level. As someone that loves fast and heavy music as well as 6 string guitars, this guy satisfied all my wants and needs. Satin is my favorite finish, black and white trim is my favorite color, and the body shape is a dream. It is simply the perfect guitar and I have never been so excited to jam on a guitar.
On top of that, the EMG pickups roar per usual, and have a very aggressive tone. With the added natrually lower register of the guitar, you can get some really heavy sounding stuff. I mainly do recording, but I can't see how this wouldn't be perfect for a live gig. I honestly can't believe how guitars like these aren't more popular.
I was nervous about the learning curve of the longer neck, but I can tell you I didn't notice a difference until returning back to my regular guitar, which actually started to look and feel too small ;)
Service was amazing per usual. Sweetwater understands how important that can/should be for their prospective customer.
THANK YOU for this guitar.
