Great guitar for the price

GSC, 01.02.2015
First off let me start by saying you are not going to get a guitar that is completely perfect aesthetically at this price point e.g details in regards to binding and general flaws in paint around the set neck.

With this out the way, this guitar is phenomenal for the price, you get a solid mahogany body with a set neck and active pickups for under £130 which is ridiculous in itself.

I will say the hardware is horrendously bad, the tuners are imprecise and don't hold tuning well, the bridge and tailpiece posts are not completely in the archtop body. However if you bear this in mind, you can buy some cheap locking tuners and a Korean made bridge which will work fine. I spent £50 on these upgrades and now it holds tuning brilliantly. I also had a problem with the neck volume pot, it just doesn't work. I haven't fixed it and I don't intend to because I don't need volume controls. 3 of the frets are slightly too high but if you play with heavy distortion minor fret buzz is not a problem.

On the positive side, it sounds amazing for metal and hard rock. It sustains incredibly well. Its solid mahogany as far as I can gather from the weight. The action is incredibly low too.

I would not hesitate to recommend this guitar to any player of any level provided that you can change a bridge and tuners which require a screwdriver and nutdriver. Its amazing for the price so you can't really go too far wrong. It is a great looming and more importantly an amazing sounding guitar

Amazing.

05.01.2017
Packaging, perfect, contents, more than perfect. Set up great, sound, great, look, great.

As with all new guitars, the fret board was a bit dry. A rub over with Lemon oil and a clean and all is good. Although there is still dirt on the board which will rub off over time.

The sound clean is simply stunning. With my choice of overdrive/distortion it roars. The volume pot is a little stiff but that will work in over time. The second volume pot is perfect as is the tone pot. Tuners, excellent and over all the guitar is just a joy to play.

A bit heavier than expected but it is a good solid guitar and the weight makes it just sit perfectly.

If you want a great guitar with active pickups that really hits the mark, ticks all the boxes and is just a joy to play, look no further. For the price, it is worth more than it's weight in gold.
