"Great guitar, only one flaw."

This guitar is rad. It’s not as twangy as a telecaster, but you can roll back the volume and get some similar tones. It’s very thick sounding overall. The bridge pickup is very versatile, it can get very clean and also handle a lot of gain. It’s now my main guitar because I just can’t get enough of it. The only issue I had with it was the pickup switch. When I received it in the mail, it was loose and the sound kept cutting out. I had to open it up and snap the casing for the switch back together, and eventually had to take it to a shop to get a new switch installed. That was kind of an inconvenience, but I’m still thinking of ordering another one fairly soon.
It’s like a bigger sounding telecaster, with less twang and jangle. You can roll back the volume and it changes the tone characteristics some, but it’s got its own thing going. Very warm sounding.
I think the bridge pickup is wonderful. You can get so many great tones when driven or clean, and the volume knob is super fun to play around with. I will say I’m not crazy about the neck pickup. I’ll honestly probably switch it out with something more jangly, but it’s not bad. Just very thick sounding with no crispness.
Ease of Use
Super easy to get good sounds from. The volume knob + bridge pickup are great.
I think it’s made very well. The neck feels a little cheap, but I’ve experienced no buzz and it stays in tune, even with me slamming on the strings for harder parts to my band’s song. Will say the electronics weren’t in the best shape even when I received it new; had to get the pickup selector replaced because it kept coming loose and cutting out. Other than that, great guitar.
Yes, it’s priced super well, and you get quite a bang for your buck.
I haven’t contacted the company.
The Wow Factor
Honestly just the way it looks, as well as the way it feels when I play on it. I give it an 8.5/10.
