Well I just purchased this guitar and I was expecting a decent guitar since it is at the $650 price point and realistically a guitar can go either way at that price point and well this guitar has its pros and it's cons but overall it's a "decent" guitar if you know how to work on guitars. You should ALWAYS inspect a guitar inside and out before you decide to keep it cause while it may look and sound great, under the hood may hold a different story. This guitar came single boxed for some reason I can't understand but it was in tack thank God. It actually had a decent set up done on it as far as action, intonation and neck relief goes, no sharp feet ends, no dead frets really nothing to be concerned with, but then I started my usual " under the hood" check and that's when the cons started popping up. The neck pocket already was starting to have finish checks in it at the corners but it wasn't in the wood but still noticeable and unacceptable. The term system is where this guitar takes a dump, I knew that it being a Floyd special it was going to need an upgrade at some point but some one at the factory drilled the spring claw screws in at the wrong place giving the screws the wrong angle and that made the cavity cover not fit because the claw sits outside the body when set up correctly, so instead of fixing the issue by dowelling the holes and starting over they simply pushed the screws back in the cavity so the cover would fit but by doing so they bent the crap out of both screws making a future set up IMPOSSIBLE! Luckily I had a floyd rose 1000 that I was able to get some parts off of and I "corrected" the problem for now by making the floyd immovable making it a fixed bridge. If I really want to fix it I'll have to dowel the holes and start over and right now I don't want to do that. That problem should NOT be on a guitar at the $650 price point!!! I didn't return the guitar because it's one of the last guitars that EVH manufactured before Eddie's death so I want to hold onto it but I'll probably NEVER buy an Indonesian made EVH again!! So buyer beware! P.S. even though they claim that the pickups are the exact same as the rest of their guitars well they're made the same but they're not the same cause it's my understanding that the pickups are made to the same specs but assembled at the factory as the guitar.

I bought it wanting a real EVH built instead building my own as I always have , As soon as the guitar came the Floyd rose was way up going to the neck direction it was not even adjusted , the string gap was like way high and the neck screws was striped so it could not have been adjusted it was not in tune and no way to get it to tune , It will need new neck and hours to make it play , I have put in a return but they are out of stock , when anyone buys this please check as soon it comes or you be sorry they no way this can have passed any inspection better off but china build yourself
