Awesome guitar!

This guitar was a Christmas gift for my husband. He absolutely loves it. He says it's the easiest playing guitar he's ever owned. And it's color is beautiful.

Great buy for the money

It is always a little scary purchasing a guitar over the internet; however, with Norb at Sweetwater I have had a very good experiences. This guitar really surprised me. It plays better and sounds significantly better that I was expecting for a guitar at this price point.

Great Instrument

Tone and looks, sounds fantastic through my 5150III combo. I especially love the feel and speed of the neck and fretboard. As a huge VH fan I was already predisposed to love this guitar, I wasn't disappointed. Delivered in perfect condition from Sweetwater.

The Perfect Superstrat

Just about perfect, right out of the box....The (charvel style) unfinished neck, along with a very light bass wood body gives this guitar an amazing feel and sound your just not going to find in this price range...The Wolfgang pickup has quite a dynamic tonal range, even with just a single volume knob...The fret work was near perfect - not a single rough edge or string buzz anywhere on the guitar...Very satisfying guitar to play....If your looking for the essence of the early 80s chavel style superstrat, this is it..graphics and all...

EVH Striped Guitar! WOW!

I first want to say I didn't just buy this because I'm a EVH fan. I had owned one of the Peavey Wolfgang Specials and really liked it but, sold it for some dumb reason. I always liked the different striped guitars that he used over the years so I thought I would give this on a try. I am glad I did. The guitar had to be set-up to my liking but, this thing rips! EVH can design a great guitar. The fit & finish was excellent and the neck is very comfortable. The pickup is one of the only ones I have gotten in a long time that I didn't change out. The Floyd stays in tune very well (even though it is the one made in Korea). The fretwork was very nice and the rest of the hardware seems very well built. It work great for the 80's style rock up to the new stuff on the radio today. I gave it 4 stars due to the fact that for this price it should include a gigbag & have a real Floyd Rose. If you want a great playing guitar then look no further then this! I think you will be very glad you quit looking!!
