Excellent guitar

Too many guitars, 17.10.2017
This is a real beauty to look at with a high gloss black finish and gold hardware with cream multiply binding, all generally nicely done with no major flaws, if i were to be extremly critical the reverse of the guitar had some bleeding through of the wood grain in areas and there are a couple of areas where there are knots on the wood but you really have to catch the light reflection to see these., The front of the guitar and neck are finished flawlessly. The guitar has some weight to it which I do like.

The best thing about this guitar is that playability is perfect straight out of the box with a very low action smooth frets and a clean tone with no buzzing, this guitar plays very well indeed. Initially I was put off by the rosacer fretboard as was a little dry but it appears very dark with a nice grain coming through which pops when oiled and polished with some fretboard conditioner. Frets are well finished with no sharp ends are are best described a medium jumbo, quite tall which makes for easy bending.

The wilkinson p90 pups have a fair bit of growl in the rear position and can be quite jangly especially on strummed arppegiated chords with a nice warmth in the front pickup, overall the tone has a warm rocky sound with the treble cutthrough when needed. The tone pot is a bit all on or of, maybe a pot change will address this.

I changed the straplocks as I prefer a standard strap button, I do not trust the design as the lock mechanisim relies on three very small cams which will wear in time.

In summary I have been supplied with a first rate playing and sounding instrument far better than its price would have me believe, consequently, it is easy to disregard some very minor cosmetic defects and design issues with the straplocks and tone control. A great Guitar!

Very nice guitar for the money

dddbbb, 16.06.2017
Pros:
- Fit and finish is nicely done, no major flaws.
- Wilkinson P90 pickups sound sweet!

Cons
- Tuner posts are too short for the headstock! There is almost no room to wrap the thicker strings. This is too bad as the tuners themselves feel quite nice.
- Fingerboard was very dry. Roseacer doesn't feel quite as smooth as rosewood, even after oiling
- Frets were rusty & rough; needed a polish (otherwise the fretwork is very good)
- Can't lower the action as low as I'd like because the strings hit the pickups. The pickups won't go lower either. However, the action is very playable as is.
- Very heavy guitar!

That seems like a lot of cons but I actually quite like this guitar, especially considering the price. I think it compares favorably with mid-range guitars that cost 3 times more. I've since put a Les Trem II on it and it sounds fantastic!
