"Best Guitar I've Ever Played, Hand Down!!"

I gotta say this is the best guitar I've ever had my hands on, and I've had my hands on some wild instruments!! When I first opened up the Rock Solid Case (SKB Style), I was blown away by how gorgeous the guitar looked. The translucent green and the high quality flamed maple shield just stood out, the fretboard was black, like how I always pictured an ebony fretboard should look!! I don't think there should be that moment where you are like "hmmm is that rosewood??", ebony should just stick out like a sore thumb. Once I was able to get past taking in how the guitar looked, I was again shook by how light the guitar is, not only that, but ergonomic to the bone!!! The guitar arrived slightly tuned down, and I sadly never had any experience with locking tuners so when I loosened them to tune the guitar, all three higher strings fell off :(. I now know how to use them though, and after a restring and setup (I did by myself, and super easy by the way) the guitar action is incredibly low, and plays like a dream, super silky neck which was awesome, since I'm used to playing high line Ibanez necks. I only really have 2 gripes about this guitar, and one of them is the pickups, I know that it is a Petrucci Signature guitar, and it's set to his specs, but I've never been a fan of DiMarzio, and it's sad that the pups don't even say "DiMarzio" on them, but even though they sound good, they are not for me.. I prefer something tighter with more sustain, I'll be changing them out with a set of Lundgren M7 pups. Finally the only other gripe I have is that the guitar didn't come with any sort of tools to adjust it, for a guitar that costs this much, I feel they should have included some starter tool kit so you could adjust everything which needed to be adjusted. But honestly with how the guitar plays, and looks, and even sounds, then looking at how easy it was to set up, it's a no brainer!! If you are thinking of getting a majesty guitar, stop thinking, and just get it (if you can afford it), zzounds 12 payment plan makes it super easy!! Get it you won't be dissapointed!!
