"I LOVE this guitar!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've had this beauty for about a month now and I absolutely love it! I wanted a "tele" style body guitar that also looked like it could shred. The pictures do no justice for this guitar. It is an absolute beauty! Very classy looking! I have been reading reviews about the pickups being "muddy" and I must say that I do not believe this to be true at all. As with any guitar I purchase with EMG's I change the batteries before anything. I bought this guitar for hard rock and classic rock for the most part but it can for sure throw some metal out there as well. I also find that the neck pickup has a good blues and jazz tone to it as well. I find the clean tones to be great as well. Let's get to the shipping aspect of this review: upon opening this guitar I found it to be set up perfectly for me. I have found no problems as of yet. The only thing I find "awkward" (and it may be right) is that the volume knobs seem to be wired backwards. The neck pickup control is at the bottom and vice versa which is only weird at first but after playing for a few hours and then changing guitars it can mess you up for a minute! I would highly recommend this axe for anyone looking for a Tele style body without the rockabilly aspect of one. Not that there is anything wrong with that of course, just my taste :)
