"Great guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I always think that if you're going to buy a signature series guitar that you should buy it not because of the artist's name on it but because it's what you're looking for in a guitar. With that being said it's always nice when both are present. The Hendrix signature on the headstock is just too cool, the likeness of him on the neck plate and reverse headstock also equally cool. This guitar however has enough going for it to stand on it's own. First off I purchased the olympic white which is aged along with the pick up covers, and knobs.Its kind of a yellowish creme color that's really vintage looking. The neck is a soft C and easy to play and also aged, it is however heavily urethaned and not real fast out of the box but I adjusted to it real quickly.The reverse head stock also takes a bit of getting used to but again you'll adjust to it. The pick ups I really like, the tone is old school. They remind me of my first Strat say 1979, they have the right amount of power and tone,they're not thick like Texas Specials, and also not thin like regular single coils.The neck adjustment was easy and when set up a bit it plays like butter. I think this is about my 10th purchase from zZounds and as always I received it in 2 days.Bottom line a great guitar regardless of Jimi on it or not.
