I waited a few days to write a review on my purchase. I wanted to take some time, play with my pedal board, Ya know, see what all tones I can get out of this baby. Let me start by saying, there isn’t a tone you can’t get out of it. Save for the super high gain stuff, in which case I recommend the HSS. For everything else, this is perfect. From shimmering clean, to medium/high gain, the new alnico single coils stay clear and articulate. The amount of body they hold is a massive upgrade from the overwound ceramic turds of old. Great string separation and clarity. A+ I have my pedals set just above unity gain, and all going in the front of my Orange AD30. Eq>od808>Dyna comp>ns2. Tweaking the Maxon did get me into high gain territory. Fit and finish. If not doing a lot of fret work on a brand new guitar is one of your favorite things, you’ll love buying this. Fret ends are very well dressed, no high frets, well crowned, well polished. The body is immaculate. I tried finding any kind of flaw or blemish. Don’t waste your time. You won’t find one. And as for the paint, the new colors are amazing. I went for Tidepool. So glad I did. The color is absolutely gorgeous. Kind of a cross between Ice Blue Metallic and Lake Placid. The gloss fretboard is smooth and not sticky. The satin neck is even smoother, and the modern c profile is perfect for my average sized hand. Hardware. Every review says it’s the same tuners, but I don’t recall the standard stuff holding tune this well. I waited on it for 45 minutes straight and didn’t have to read more tune once. The saddles are great. The bent steel is a huge upgrade over the cast jobbers that came standard before. Lastly, the trem block is not a thin little piece of crap. It’s a big block trem. Still cast pot metal, but the difference is amazing. Huge sustain when compared to the old standards. All in all, insane value. I can not believe this is a Mexican made guitar. It feels like an American, and plays like it too. The only thing I’d add, is treble bleed, but with the new wiring of the second tone controlling just the bridge pickup, it isn’t a deal breaker. I’m probably going to order another one in HSS, just because of how amazing this one is.
