Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
I am SICK enough to own 8 (!!!) of these instruments!
Hey...when I find something I like............
Let me preface.....these are wonderful toneful pieces of wood that are nicely made.
They LOOK great onstage and are sexy as hell!
The ELECTRONICS (pickups) however, leave MUCH to be desired!! In short....they SUCK!!
I WILL NOT accept mediocrity in MY instruments...they must PERFORM; and PERFORM to MY specs!!
The humbucker is WEAK and toneless....no cajones to it!
The single coils are noisy as heck and are mousey.
The tuners (Ping) are horrible little pieces of dung!
The saddles are cheap.
After sinking about $300.00 in new pickups, tuners and saddles......these guitars are absolutely UNBELIEVABLE!!!
I will put them up against a Fender Custom Shop instrument ANY day of the week!!
So....for a total of about $1100.00.....these guitars (IMHO) rival just about ANY Custom Shop guitar!!
And SAVE a couple of thousand dollars in the process!!
Get one.....and 'do it up' YOUR way...with YOUR choice of premium pickups and such....you'll have a GREAT guitar!!
