After waiting months I pulled the trigger on the G5222 Aged Natural. I was after the Malcolm Young flavor but not pay $3100 to get it. After reading tons of reviews and watching many demos I took a chance. I'm in love with it ! We play tons of AC/DC and it is the perfect compliment to my son n laws Gibson SG. The fit and finish is perfect, looks better in person than photos. Stays in tune very well and the tone is outstanding. Set up was near perfect out of the box. Controls work great. It can go from pristine cleans to in your face crunch. Glad I made the purchase. We play through Marshall tube and BOSS MKII Artist amps and the tone is awesome. Myself and my son n law say they could charge a lot more for this AXE.

Musical Background:

Hobbyist, intermidiate.

Musical Style:
