"My favorite guitar!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I was looking for something different. Something semi hollow which is a first for me. I came across this gorgeous guitar and I couldn't stop coming back to it. Then throw in active pickups too??? This guitar checks off a lot of boxes for me but the one that surprised me was the fact that this guitar can actually shred with extreme metal tones as well. Did I buy it for that? Nope! I bought this beauty for 70s style rock and roll, blues and jazz but this guitar is not limited in potential at all! I have metal inspired guitars and thats basically all I've ever owned so it was time to change it up. I've had this guitar for about 2 weeks now and it has been reshaping the way I play and the way I think about playing. I even have a picture set as my background on my phone and everytime I'm at work and grab my phone I just want to go home and jam hahaha. I brought it to work one day and jaws were dropping left and right!
Musical Background:
Rock and Metal
