The day i got the guitar, i had a hard time putting it down, imany complain about the burstbucker pickups . saying they are harsh sounding..but for hard rock , or heavy blues, they are perfect. The sound packs a serious punch. The push/ pull knobs are brilliant, you have the choice of a humbucker , or a p-90 tone at your finger tips. This guitar is actually lighter then a standard sg. But plays more like a les paul.Making this guitar a hybrid. If you play rock. or blues, i highly suggest this guitar. Jazz players may want to avoid.
For hard rock and blues, the bright , punchy tone is perfect. I listen to all kinds of music , but i enjoy playing rock , blues, and a bit of metal. So this guitar fits me like a glove.
The push / pull pots are great. Keep them down and youll have a classic humbucker sound, lift the knobs, and a good single coil sound . very very versatile.
Ease of Use
Once you get the hang of the push / pull pots..the sky is the limit. And without the les paul weight.
Well...yes this guitar comes with a hardshell case. And yes its worth the $$
The Wow Factor
Hmmm....well. Ill idmit , its not a " flashy " guitar, its simple and practical. But the maple finish is pleasant to look at.
Been playing about 15 yrs. I play guitar and a little bass
Rock , hard rock, blues , some metal. And rockabilly
