"5 way switch with split coils!!! Really! Great value and tone - not perfect but it is cheap!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
My guitar arrived with the output jack all floppy and bad intonation on two strings, otherwise it is a pretty sweet little guitar in that minty metallic green. I had to fix the guitar myself as customer service kinda sucks at zZounds. The guy offered to take it back and all, but with their processing time it would have been a week or more for a replacement. I would have expected a few bucks shaved off for the hassle. Next time I buy local. It took 5 minutes to remove the jackplate and fix the jack connection. Luckily I'm handy, some other buyers might not be so lucky. Then what? Right?! Shame on you zZounds. After changing strings and setting the intonation up, 4 strings were close and the other 2 really needed a turn or two. The action looks good out of the box and pups don't sound too bad. It took a minute to dial it in, but I can real good clean and crunchy tones with my VHT Special 6 Ultra amp. Add a smithering of compression, delay and reverb and it sounds superb. Here is the best part I have NOT seen advertised anywhere. It comes with a 5 way switch and coil split!!! 1st position is neck humbucker, next position is neck pup split, north me thinks. Center position is both buckers and position 4 is both coils split, with position 5 being the bridge humbucker. I may swap the split in the future, as I'd prefer to have the single coil split at the bridge, but I'm happy for now. This feature adds a lot of tonal variety and makes this guitar a real winner in my book. Great little noodling guitar with a great big tone. I'm quite pleased with the purchase overall and it's a nice, portable addition to my collection.
