"Needs some work"

ConsNeeds better pick ups right off the bat, the emg 81-7's just dont cut it, very quite and no balls, this guitar isn't balanced very well either, the head stock end wants to fall downward soon as you let it go, the battery housing has to be unscrewed ever time you need to change the 9 volt so youll have to do some body work to swap that out for one flips openProsLooks amazing and once i put the stephen carpenter signature fishman fluence pick ups in this beast it sounds amazing, plays like a dream too, just sucks it needed so much work before it was a good guitar, at $1000 i expect at least a battery compartment thats not a pain in the ass
After new pickups, thicker strings and a better set up this guitar sounds amazing, but be prepared to do some work to it to get a great sound out of it, it is not out of the box friendly!!
Stock pickups blow, battery housing has to be screwed open and closed to change out 9v, terribly balanced and uncomfortable to play
Ease of Use
Had to do a ton of work to this thing before i could stand playing it, new pickups and battery housing
Product is great quality, its just the aesthetics of it that ruin it
No, theres tons of better 7 strings you can buy for the price, this guitar is a huge let down. It should be priced at about $500
Didnt have to contact them
The Wow Factor
More of a "wow! I cant believe how much this guitar sucks out of the box!" Make sure you order new pickups and strings with it cause youll need them
15yrs playing guitar, lots of bands, tons of shows and studio work
