Customer Kudos "zZounds is a company run by musicians. Musicians understand just how difficult it is to afford quality musical Instruments. They show great trust by allowing musicians to buy on time payments which allow the average musician to be able to afford a top quality instrument that would otherwise be out of reach. They are polite and helpful." - Customer on March 12, 2018

Schecter C-1 Hellraiser

"Sound is whatever you desire, from insane to unexpected beautiful clean tone, and with the push/pull coil tap there's just no end of possible sounds."
- Freddy in Lincolnton, NC

"Push/pull coil taps, string-thru body, seamless set neck so well made, you'd swear it was neck-thru, locking tuners, active EMG 81/89 pickups. This is all crafted beautifully into an incredibly attractive package."
- Keenan in Weare, NH

"Great sustain and a lot of bite! Pinch harmonics come with ease and the overall appearance displays to audiences everywhere that you're ready to rock."
- Nate in Warner Robins, GA

Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Standard

"Comfortable weight, sleek neck, nice frets and the classic solid body humbucker sound. Excellent guitar right out of the box for everything from classic rock to jazz, southern rock, modern rock, alternative...you name it."
- Archie

"The sound is true Les Paul. The quality is superb and the fit and the finish are what it is all about."
- Walter in Rex, GA

"It has very solid tone, amazing sustain, a groovy neck, none of that single-coil tapping nonsense. It is simply stunning to look at. It is a straight-ahead rock and roll guitar."
- Stephen L in Las Cruces, NM

Ibanez AS153 Artstar

"The Tri-Tone switch is really cool. It works great for getting different lead tones. Fit and finish right out of the box were spot on!"
- Curt in Eagle River, AK

"I was skeptical at first but it has absolutely no flaws. Action was perfect out of the box. Pickups are capable of beautiful clean to rockabilly to blues to screaming solos."

"Rich, full sound with crisp sizzling highs that bite. Great dynamics. Hard to put into words but the character and range of tones this thing can produce are a delight to the senses. Almost like it's alive."
- Ryan in Stockton, CA

EVH Eddie Van Halen Wolfgang USA

"Simply put just a WICKED GUITAR! Sounds like a Kramer Baretta & Peavey Wolfgang combined. Perfect set-up -- tune it and play right out of the box. Right on the money quality -- top gun!"

"This guitar is so comfortable to play. You can definitely shred on this thing."
- Steve in Lorain, OH

"Amazing guitar. So well-made and put together. The neck and fretboard are incredible. The pickups are fantastic -- this is just what I wanted for producing distorted and overdriven tones."
- Jeff in Pine Island, MN

Kramer Baretta Special

"The stock pickup sounds great. Neck is thin and comfortable and the 'cool' factor of finally owning a Kramer (as a teen I couldn't afford one back in 1987) can't be beat."
- Thomas in Flat Rock, MI

"The pickup is aggressive sounding. It's a little noisy but acceptable. I'm not sure if it's the wood of the body, the pickup, or the angle of the pickup, but it has great sustain and feedback. I was shocked how much sustain the guitar has."
- Dave in Watervliet, MI

"Unbeatable for this price. Weight is nice and it feels solid. Cannot believe how impressed I am with this guitar. It was just going to be a practice/stand by but I don't want to put this down."
- Phil in Grand Junction, CO

Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline

"Really nice sustain that illustrates how wrong-headed we used to be about needing a heavy guitar to get good sustain. Completely wrong."
Chris in Penn Valley, PA

"When I found the Thinline model, I was hooked. Don't let the name or the price fool you, this is a lovely, solid instrument, and plays and sounds like a dream."
- Heather in Portland, OR

"Wood grain was very nice. Not a single flaw in finish. Polished frets with finished ends. Sounds crisp but also full."
- Ivan in Durham, NC

D'Angelico EXL-1

"The electric tone is sublime. Johnny Smith, George Van Eps-type tones spring forth effortlessly. This is a fine, fine-working pro-level jazz guitar. The case it came with is very well made and adds a lot of value to the overall purchase."
- Ed in New Orleans, LA

"This is a true old-style f-hole archtop. The pickup is mild, but adequate with a good amp and gives a nice woody tone. Workmanship is excellent."
- Michael in Georgetown, OH

"It plays beautifully, feels wonderful in your hands and is responsive plugged in or not. With my Fender Twin Reverb this guitar gives you that real jazz tone we all love."
- Bill in Holiday, FL
