    Plays like butter and is worth every dollar!

    I purchased this guitar a week ago and all I can say is “Wow!” Before plugging in I strummed a chord, hit a note and instantly noticed the guitar’s resonance. It’s loud! I ran through a few scales, half-bends, full-step bends and 1 ½ step-bends and was amazed with its ease. I know this was strung with 9s but the scale length felt like my LP Standard – nice!

    The build quality is superb and I didn’t see any issues with the frets, the fingerboard, the finish and the hardware. The vibrato system accepts dives and pull ups really well. I’m impressed with the locking tuners and they do a good job of keeping the strings in tune.

    I haven’t had the chance yet to plug into my Marshall JVM 410H & Mesa 2x12 recto cab. However I did manage to play it through my Vox ADT 30 and was pleasantly surprised to hear the guitar’s tones. The resonance I mentioned earlier sounded nice in clean mode. Blending of the piezos with the magnetic pickups made a noticeable difference: Nice acoustic definition. The DiMarzios really kicked in when the dirty channels were selected. My favorite pickup selection is the neck and this position doesn’t disappoint.

    If you’re thinking about purchasing this guitar, go for it - you won’t be disappointed!
