Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
i expect to be greatly satisfied with this guitar for the rest of my life,i do own other instruments, and probably will have other guitars that i use for my sound, but this guitar is, and will always be, a staple in my musical quest.
Sound
the sound of this guitar is warm and rich , it has a great bluesy sound and feel .the sustain is excellent it is avery nice guitar for straight rythm and blues sound as well as classic rock sound
Features
the guitar came with a tremolo bridge , i dont think it is useful on this guitar, it throws the guitar out of tune ,i recommend blocking the bridge, it adds stability . i removed the tremolo bar , with the bridge blocked the guitar stays in tune very well and seems to have better sustain
Quality
the instrument is made beautifully, the finish is outstanding, and the hardware is nice and solid
Value
it is definately worth the selling price it has great value for the money
Manufacturer Support
i have not dealt with the company
