Definitely worth it

Katoda, 17.06.2018
I got this guitar last year, mainly because I wanted to try out a fanned fret guitar. I had all intention to modify it to bits, but when I got it I changed my mind. It actually sounds very good for what it's made for - metal, that is.

When I got it, I found several small problems, the main one being a bad ground connection to the bridge. I had to file the bottom of the bridge saddles (and glue some aluminium foil, just it case) to stop the immense buzzing. The second problem was sharp fret ends and bad routing on the neck. It had a ledge on the bottom side of the neck, very noticeable when playing.
Luckily I was prepared to do some extra work, because in truth, I was expecting far bigger problems at that price point. I sanded down the neck and the frets. Problem solved. Also, the fretboard was very dry. The roseacer has that feeling by default, I think, compared to rosewood, but this was extremely weird. After two lemon oil applications, the string bends are now much easier, and the feeling is pretty much the same as rosewood.
The guitar was perfectly intonated with very low action straight from the factory. It even has locking tuners! The pickups are good for metal, but the neck is quite muddy for both cleans and leads. Luckily, they have 4 wire setup, so installing coil-split was a breeze. Now the cleans are OK. The writing on the pickups (HBZ) seems very cheap, but that's probably because they seem to be making the coil bobbins with some hard-pressed-paper-thingy, instead of plastic. Doesn't matter, I'll change them if I want to in the future, but I really don't care about the aestethics of pickups.
All in all, I know that these guitars are made to be a low-cost solid foundation for future upgrades, and that is what they are. I have no dead spots on my neck, the tuning is stable, and chords are perfectly intonated throughout the neck, unlike pretty much every other not-fanned-frets guitar. Wonderful.
I definitely recommend.
