"Great Guitar for little money"
I recently purchased a used Premier for under $500 and man what a deaL. When I got it home i plugged it into my Carvin BelaIr and I was in heaven. Great clean shimmering tones almost like a es335 but with more balls. AS i went from pick up to pick up it was obvious that on the bridge PU i needed some over drive for the sound I was looking for so I kicked in my old tube screamer and man what a sound. Very similar to a les Paul with great sustain and tone. I played it for hours. I can’t believe the craftsmanship in this guitar. Beautiful headstock, straight neck, great intonation and a beautifully bound fretboard. No buzzing and nice sized frets. I would recommend to Anyone that if you are looking for an alternative to 3k les Paul’s, you should at least give one of these a try. Especially younger players with limited budgets. If you play rock, classic rock, country or blues even Jazz, this axe is a keeper.
Musical Background:
I have been playing guitar for 50 years. IN a number of cover bands and now play with a select group of friends every Monday nig
Musical Style:
I play classic rock, country and blues mostly. Some earlier Dylan, CSN and John Prine. Big SRV fan and Alman Bros Tommy Emmanuel
