The first time I plugged this guitar in, it blew me away! The P90s just sing and cut through the mix effortlessly. They also have this percussive attack that I just can't get enough of. And to top it all off, they have a well-balanced frequency response. The notes just come out super clear--even when played through ample amounts of gain.
The guitar feels great to play. Once you pick it up, you'll have a hard time putting it down--and I haven't even had mine set up to suit my playing style. Of course, the fact that it looks absolutely stunning doesn't hurt either.
Now, as for the equipment I'm running this through, I'm just using a Fender Mustang III V2. I don't have any pedals. It's just the guitar straight to the amp.
I mainly play disco punk, rock and alternative music. But I'm pretty sure this guitar would easily handle heavier styles equally well.
Kudos to the Sweetwater team, especially Bob Furlong, for helping me with my purchase. The guitar arrived here in perfect condition. It was carefully inspected and packed before being shipped out. It's just topnotch customer service. I can't wait for my next purchase!
