Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Whoa! Glad I Got One"
Sound: Well this is where I believe this guitar sets itself apart from other electric and/or electric-acoustics in the market. Purists may have a difficult time accepting the unique ability this guitar offers, the sound it produce is not the "pure" electric sound and definitely not the "pure" acoustic sound that a traditionalist might be looking for. Electric or acoustic tones on it's own, this guitar would rank average BUT when mixed together that is when it does it's magic and would then rank very high in my book. Feature: It is the convenience of only having to bring one guitar to a gig with me that makes this guitar extra special. Ease of Use: Once you learn the controls and get the right mix between the on board preamp and PA/Amp it's just like any other guitar - rock away! Quality: Craftsmanship and finish both get an A+ from me. I've inspected this guitar top to bottom and every which way that I can and did not find any flaw on the guitar's finish, neck fit in the neck pocket properly, no visible mis-cuts or mis-routes, frets were all dressed properly. Fit - a little high of an action for my taste out of the box but not bad enough that it's a deal breaker. A bit of setting up is just about to be expected with any stringed instrument as action is partially subjective in nature. Value: Overall Value - it is not inexpensive by no means and only time would tell if it will hold up but I have high hopes! Manufacturer Support: Have not really needed it at this point. The Wow Factor: Wow X 100 Overall: After a long and grueling decision process I finally ordered one from Zzounds (exceptional customer service as usual) and am I glad that I did. I ordered the 3 Color Burst.Finish - craftmanship and finish both get an A+ from me.

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.
