"Best guitar for the price hands down"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
You will never find a guitar with this build quality for this price from anyone in the USA. Absolutely flawless finish, perfectly set up from factory. (Mine was not removed from the original packaging upon arrival to zZounds). Spec wise, this guitar won't need anything to make it road worthy. Locking tuners and strap locks from factory. Not a huge fan of active pickups but these sound really good. My only grip is that the pickups don't clean up when rolling back the volume. Not sure if this is common with actives as this is my first set.
Sound
Great overall tones. Clean or dirty, split or full humbucker. Very sensitive to your picking dynamics. Pickups don't clean up when rolling back the volume knob.
Features
Component spec is fantastic for the price point. No one else offers Gotoh locking tuners and strap locks for this price.
Ease of Use
Super comfortable neck. Not a baseball bat neck and not an wizard neck. The active pickups are going to take a little getting used to.
Quality
This guitar is worthy of custom shop status. You will not find a better made guitar in this price range from any other manufacturer. This thing makes Gibsons look like they were made in junior high wood shop.
Value
Best guitar for the money. Worth far more than the price tag.
The Wow Factor
There is a reason why its continually back ordered.
