"AWESOME FOR THE MONEY"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
i plan on keeping this thing for a long long while, plays very well, sounds awesome with the emg's. if it were lost, stolen, etc. i would buy another.
it sounds great stock, i added the emg 81/85 set and it made a world of difference. definatley worth uprgrading. this guitar is great for metal and hard rock, nice thin neck for shredding!
it is pretty straight forward, nice tuners and bridge, plays well. the stock electronics are a little cheesy with the mid cut switch but i ripped all that out in favor of a set of emgs. otherwise its great for the money.
Ease of Use
easy to get a heavy sound from, as well as nice leads. definatley goes good with a boosted tube amp.
overall fit and finish is very good for this price. my frets were a little rough on the edges, but thats no big deal. the only complaint i have with this guitar is that the factory wiring is very sloppy. i know this because i replaced the pickups and all electronics for emg's.
this guitar is a great value, buy this and upgrade the electronics and you have the equivelant of a prestige ibanez for a fraction of the cost.
i picked 10 because i havent dealt with them, but i imagine there will be no issues with this guitar, well made!
The Wow Factor
the thin neck and the red burst with black hardware is what makes it.
