Unreal for the money

I thought the guitar would be a true $799 value. It's much better than I ever expected. It is extremely fast and easily compares with other IBs I paid 3 times as much for. Mine came well adjusted, string height was perfect and harmonics are good. Neck is not as "thin" as 5 piece wizards, but it's fine for me.Excellent string bending capability.Stays in tune well and it looks great. I do alot of tapping and this guit. is great. It really plays light and FAST. Much more than I expected. Pick ups are fine for me as I get plenty of sustain and I think the right amp ca make up for the pick ups if you don't like em; or replace em. It's too early to tell, seeing as I just got it, but if it holds up as well as the 94 S I bought, then it's a bargain.

Why did I buy this?

Nothing special here. Love the fret board, the oval inlays are nice but the bridge is sloppy and the pickups are really 'second best' grounding screw under the single coil pickup wasnt even screwed in just kinda there. Block the bridge, change the pickups basicly spend another $300 and you will have yourself a exellent wand.. don't forget to re-secure everything. like loose screws. I love the fret board and body... everything else got dumped.
