zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Decent but..."
Overall: I have played guitar for 16 years. I have played quite a few guitars. When I first found this guitar I had to have it!!! Wowwee! I sure is slick!!! Beautiful finish awesome Quilted Maple top, Body and neck are Mahogany, and the fret board is Ebony. Pros: Awesome Finish, The Floyd Rose is very responsive, Grover tuners, Floyd tuners are spot on. Cons: IMO the pickups could be wayyyy better for a 1000$ guitar, the coil tapping feature is cool but mehhh. The neck pick up is very very muddy, as well as the bridge pu. There are flaws in the gloss/lacquer quite a few runs on the edges. seems they are all that way. MY NUMBER 1 COMPLAINT IT IS MADE IN KOREA!!! AWESOME HUH 1000$ AND MADE IN KOREA!!!! It is nowhere noted on this guitar where it was made. after 3 emails and 1 call to dean in florida i was told directly they are made in Korea. MAJOR BUMMER

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
